This is what Aman says about CSR for HR:

"Our professional journey begins the day we go for that first job interview. When the HR professional matches candidates with employers, she is not only contributing to the company’s sustainable growth, she is also directing an individual’s career path. For corporate responsibility to be contextual and effective, it is undeniable then that human resources inculcate this mindset from day one. With this book by Elaine Cohen now, we can finally stop spending hours espousing why CSR must begin with the HR team and just turn to her poignant stories and candid examples for an acute realization: A new corporate consciousness is redefining the way we conduct business, and a company’s HR department must embrace this and lead the change by ensuring that they continue to attract the right talent. Whether you work in HR, talent management, diversity, leadership development, or have any role in business strategy, this book is a must-read!"
