While firms have long-been criticised for their irresponsible behaviours, and justice doled out in the form of hefty fines that sometimes reach the billion-dollar mark, firms still survive and firms still continue to stray from the good path. Why? Prof. Tanusree Jain of Trinity Business School explores the crucial role corporate boards have in reducing and eventually preventing corporate social irresponsibility.
The fifth in a series of Council on Business & Society Research Pods – condensed learning capsules inspired from internationally published research in the fields of CSR, management and leadership, HR, finance and reporting, social enterprise, entrepreneurship, philanthropy, and sustainable business practices.
For managers, entrepreneurs, leaders, instructors and those with an interest in research with an impact. Ramp up your knowledge, improve your teams, gain in leadership, reshape your business or give your teaching, training or coaching a new dynamic.
