Summary of Corporate Universities
A Lever of Corporate Responsibility
Use your corporate university to promote your social mission.
Author Annick Renaud-Coulon, a renowned innovator in the field of corporate universities, and chairman of the Global Council of Corporate Universities, teaches that corporations should contribute to the greater good by fostering “CSR and Sustainable Development Responsibility” within their internal educational institutions and programs. Explaining her innovative theories, published in this book in English for the first time, she focuses on using corporate learning to help groups and organizations achieve social ideals. Her book is a collection of scholarly expositions, ranging from the theory of citizenship and the state, to corporate responsibility and global regulation. Readers will find that her thought span is impressively broad as she lays the groundwork for her responsibility-oriented business case for corporate universities. Her book’s subhead – “Make Your Corporate University a Lever of Your Corporate Responsibility” – is the slogan of a 30-nation, five-continent conference she led on CSR and sustainable development. getAbstract finds that her philosophical approach provides a very fresh, responsible pivot point for corporate educators who want to bring their programs to full maturity and utility. The book is particularly directed toward corporate university executives, chief learning officers, HR directors, executive committee managers, sustainable development officers, and those who are starting or managing corporate universities.
