Cotton, Elizabeth (2010) CSR and HRM. In: Critical issues in human resource management. Roper, Ian, Prouska, Rea and Chatrakul Na Ayudhya, Uracha, eds. CIPD, London, UK. ISBN 9781843982425. [Book Section]


The aim of this chapter is to help students understand the contemporary issues around corporate social responsibility and employment relations. Readers should be able to see the shift in paradigms of CSR during this century and recognise the main mechanisms currently in place. The chapter then looks at the impact of the ‘externalisation’ of the employment relationship on the scope of CSR. That is, to whom are companies responsible? Readers will finally be encouraged to form a critical perspective about the effectiveness of CSR in generating improved employment relations in the current climate.
