CSR for HR in Germany

Is CSR for HR the next big thing ?

I would like to share with you an article I wrote for a German professional HR Magazine explaing why I think it is.You can download it from my website here .  The jounal, Personahfuehrung is  the magazine of DGPF, the German Association for Personnel Management,  founded by representatives from the worlds of business and science in 1952. This was a time in which new achievements such as autonomous wage bargaining, many new acts of parliament such as the Labour-Management Relations Act and the start-up of the social market economy were exercising a strong influence on company personnel and social-welfare policies. In order to manage these new challenges, those responsible sought some kind of supra-industry interchange of views and experience.

DGFP is a non profit organization, headquartered in D├╝sseldorf, with regional offices in Berlin, Frankfurt/M., Hamburg, Leipzig, Stuttgart and Munich. It comprises about 2000 members ranging from large, medium-sized and smaller companies. According to its charter, DGFP's mission is to promote human resources management - in practice, research and teaching. DGF's monthly magazine "Personalf├╝hrung" is for members and others interested in personnel management subjects, reports on the latest developments in human resources. Each issue features a main topic.The subscriber spectrum goes far beyond those working in HR and includes a wide variety of readers in Germany and abroad.

I am delighted to have contributed to this important publication and hope the message gets through. By now, you know what it is: It is time for HR to wake up to CSR!
