By Linda Holbeche

A bland e-book with little of curiosity, except you're employed for a central authority division in a third-world kingdom. Reads like a tutorial treatise from a second-year pupil in 1990.

The principles are trite and shortage substance. for instance, "dealing with terrible functionality" is mentioned in one paragraph. "Long time period incentives and percentage ownership", too, is glossed over in a micro-paragraph approximately tendencies with nary a connection with shareholder price and rewards.

This booklet is a wonderful instance of the lead-lag chasm among American HR practices and Europe's archaic thinking.

Similarly, Sir Terry Leahy, chief executive of Tesco, has introduced carbon labelling on all 70 000 of Tesco’s product lines. British Airways is the only airline in the world that is actively trading its carbon emissions and also runs a voluntary carbon offset scheme for its customers in return for the carbon emissions created by their journey. Investors too are making it clear that it is not only morally preferable to be socially responsible but a sign that a company is managing risk. Companies that fail to achieve alignment between business values, purpose and strategy with the economic and social needs of employees and customers, while embedding responsible and ethical business policies and practices, risk exposure to the harsh world of scrutiny and censure.

Corporate reputations, in turn, depend to a large extent on the behaviours and decisions of those who work for, or represent an organization. They can be put at risk – rightly or wrongly – by disgruntled employees who have access to company information and who make use of company intranets and the Internet to broadcast poor practice, or who exploit company data for personal gain. Similarly, corporate reputations can be put at risk by being perceived to be a bad employer. The range of employment legislation and the growth of litigation in the UK, echoing US practice, is reflected in the plethora of employment tribunals in which employees bring cases alleging that their employment rights or, in some cases, their human rights have in some way been infringed.
