Five more interesting resources on CSR and HR and the intersection of both:

This article is subtitled “reducing your environmental impact one employee at a time” and was referred to me by Twitter friend @cathyj131. The point is that HR can make a big contribution to the greening of a Company. We all agree, for sure.

Thanks to @claytontford for referring this article.It is about the changing nature of HR career paths and HR careerists, and ends up with a quote “Human resources is a crucial point of intersection between the broader society and business.” The full research paper, providing the basis for this article, on attributes of HR Leaders, by Dr Peter Capelli and Yang Yang can be downloaded here
More Businesses Tie Executive Compensation to Environmental Metrics, published May 2010 on Environmentalleader.com . The article says that companies are realizing the power that executive pay policies have on environmental perofrmance. Good development.
Lloyds looks to train “every manager” in sustainability, published on Greenwisebusiness.co.uk , May 2010. Thanks to Fabian Pattberg for his post on the Sustainabilityforum.com for alerting me to this article. Clearly, ensuring managers know how to advice customers is a necessary element of advancing CSR.
The most heard words at the Responsible Business Summit 2010 were “DNA” and embedding. Article posted by Pam Muckosy, chief researcher at Ethical Corporation, in May 2010, on how CSR is embedded in the business. She quotes figures from a research paper Ethical Corporation published last year. Actually, I reviewed this paper in a number of posts on my CSR Reporting blog:

Embedding CSR in the Finance function
Embedding CSR in the Operations and Logistics Function
Embedding CSR in the Corporate Communications Function
