EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
This report was commissioned to examine the Role of Human Resource Management in Corporate Social Responsibility. CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) is a well-researched topic that can be used as a strategy tool, communication tool and leadership tool. In addition, CSR can be used with the Stakeholder theory. In fact, all of these theories can implicitly describe how employees are affected by CSR. However, this description can be more explicit if CSR is linked with HRM (Human Resource Management). Thus, the purpose of this research is to explore how CSR can be used as an HR-tool. The edge of this study was to find the role of Human Resources Management (HRM) in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and to what extent the HRM professionals are aware about the CSR. This study is also giving the overview of key trends and business drivers for fostering CSR-HRM connection. In this study I use participant’s observation, Questionnaire and Interviews to investigate the way the organizations are using to create employee engagement in CSR activities. However, a new dawn of CSR is now advocated to reposition HRM professionals as strategic business partners to enhance the successful packaging and execution of CSR programs. The study defines the role engagement of the HRM professionals. CSR activities to include among others, leading and educating employees on the value of CSR, developing responsible and sustainable practices, communicating CSR activities to employees and other stakeholders, and providing direction, control and action plans for implementing the program in the organization.
