Corporate Responsibility

For many years, corporate social responsibility was a secondary consideration as companies formulated their business strategies. While there were exceptions, most companies existed to turn a profit and paid minimal attention to their impact on society. Though government attempted to regulate corporate behavior and safeguard the public interest, organizations typically did not have to exercise social and financial responsibility. These days, however, companies have to behave ethically and within the law.

getAbstract enables you to stay up-to-date with the latest developments concerning corporate responsibility. Our talented business writers compress the most important information from the most current books into five-page summaries that you can read in 10 minutes. As an informal learning tool, getAbstract is unmatched in its ability to deliver critical knowledge wherever and whenever you want it.

New Ball Game

In the wake of several significant corporate scandals over the last decade or so, companies have come under greater public scrutiny. Shareholders and consumers demand more accountability and have little tolerance for those who breach ethical boundaries. An increased awareness of environmental issues has in many cases motivated companies to be more ecologically conscious and sensitive to their impact on the environment.

Considering the relevance of corporate social responsibility and its ongoing evolution, it makes perfect sense to partner with getAbstract. You’ll keep pace with every trend and development and likely will be inspired to share information and insights with family, friends and colleagues. getAbstract makes learning a pleasure.
