Corporate Social Responsibility - good for employers, good for trade unions?
Karlstad University, Faculty of Economic Sciences, Communication and IT, Department of Working Life Science.
2008 (English)Conference paper, (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Abstract [en]

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has, until recently, played little part in the industrial relations process. Emerging evidence suggests that employers and trade unions have common ground in their wish to see greater emphasis placed on the needs of those groups not in employment and commonly referred to as socially excluded.



Empirical results of trade union led training initiatives from the public sector municipal services in Sweden and an employer/employee partnership the Health Service in the UK show that positive, new opportunities for employers, employees and participants are emerging. The promotion of a learning environment and learning culture free from anxiety and shame helps people to grow and develop employability skills, self-confidence and pursue new careers. Trade union representatives are also developing new interests and skills, whilst employers make a greater, corporate contribution to society.
