While throwing light on the various issues faced by companies and their stakeholders during the implementation of CSR, it also offers strategies and recommendations for improved synergy among the stakeholders and a more effective CSR. The book is based on the authors' primary research study and is illustrated with various company examples and primary surveys on how CSR implementation varies from organization to organization, including family-based firms, public sector enterprises, multinational corporations and professional enterprises. Sectoral differences in CSR implementation have also been covered, as well as the important issue of CSR reporting practices.
