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

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.

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