Corporate Governance, Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility brings together the three separate strands relevant to the new demands of organizational behaviour and reporting. This text taking a holistic approach to the issue of the role of the organization in society, the responsibilities within which it operates, obligations to its stakeholders (including its employees and their dependents) and the ethical underpinning which has to be in place for any form of honest reporting, the authors look t only at the organization as a reporting entity complying with a set of rules or nebulous concepts but as a functioning part of the business environment. Offering a wealth of real-life examples and case studies, the author demonstrate the realities of balancing socially responsible business with modern business practice in a diverse range of organizations, including both the private and public sector.
