Are Companies Good Citizens?

By Bradley Googins and Philip Mirvis With the sniping and gridlock around raising the federal debt ceiling, job creation stalled, and 401ks in free fall, a question to consider is:  What does this all have to do with corporate citizenship? Amidst this turmoil, American business has mostly sat on the sidelines, or lobbied behind the scenes, but been more observer than public participant in the issues of the day.

Publication: GERN Report 2009 "Mapping Stakeholder Landscapes"

The expectations and the voice of stakeholders do have a growing influence on corporate citizenship. However, number and type of stakeholders, and their respective influence and opinions about business conduct, differ from one country to the next. That is why, the approaches firms take to corporate citizenship and the nature of it will differ as well. That is the thesis, the new GERN report “Mapping Stakeholder Landscapes” comes up with. CCCD participated in this research as a member of GERN and gave input on the stakeholder landscape concerning corporate citizenship in Germany.
