Business Ethics: Decision Making for Personal Integrity & Social Responsibility (Repost)

Laura Hartman, Joseph DesJardins, Chris MacDonald, “Business Ethics: Decision Making for Personal Integrity & Social Responsibility”
2013 | ISBN: 0078029457 | English | 640 pages | PDF | 13 MB

Business Ethics: Decision-Making for Personal Integrity & Social Responsibility, 3e is designed to prepare the student to apply an ethical decision-making model, not only in the ethics course but throughout her or his business discipline. This model teaches students ethical skills, vocabulary, and tools to apply in everyday business decisions and throughout their business courses. The authors speak in a sophisticated yet accessible manner while teaching the fundamentals of business ethics. Hartman’s professional background in law and her teaching experience in the business curriculum, combined with DesJardins’ background in philosophy and MacDonald’s ability to distill complicated business transactions into understandable terms, results in a broad language, ideal for this approach and market. The authors’ goal is to engage the student by focusing on cases and business scenarios that students already find interesting. Students are then asked to look at the issues from an ethical perspective. Additionally, its focus on AACSB requirements makes it a comprehensive business ethics text for business school courses.

The goal for the third edition is to provide “a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to the ethical issues arising in business.” Hartman and DesJardins have retained the focus on decision-making as well as the emphasis on both personal and policy-level perspectives on ethics. This edition continues to provide pedagogical support throughout the text. The most noticeable changes involve a thorough updating of distinct items such as Reality Checks, Decision Points, and readings to reflect new cases, examples and data.

Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility Through Physical Activity 3rd Edition

Don Hellison, “Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility Through Physical Activity-3rd Edition”
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0736094709 | PDF | pages: 224 | 2,9 mb

Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility Through Physical Activity, now entering its third edition, attests to author Don Hellison’s ability to shape and develop character and responsibility in children. Perhaps the success of Hellison’s book can be attributed to his status not only as a highly respected scholar-activist but as a teacher in the trenches working with inner-city kids.

Kids in any situation will benefit from the thoroughly updated material in this edition, which presents practical, proven, easy-to-implement ideas for teaching personal and social responsibility (TPSR) in school, after school, and in alternative settings. It also supplies direction in teaching affective and social moral goals, an in-depth look into teaching character development and values, and a method for helping students develop personal and social responsibility.

Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility Through Physical Activity offers much new material:

• Strategies for alternative schools, afterschool programs, and the emerging youth development movement

• Vignettes sprinkled throughout the chapters, written by TPSR instructors in various settings

• Several chapters that have been completely overhauled

• An expanded assessment chapter to help readers evaluate the impact of TPSR on their kids and apply the strategies

• One new chapter on combining responsibility-based youth development with teacher preparation in physical education

In addition, the book features “Kid Quotes” to help readers understand how kids respond to the TPSR approach, as well as forms and charts to help readers put the ideas and strategies to use.

The result is a field-tested book that is the accepted curricular model in the field—and a resource that will enable teachers to help their students grow into solid citizens both personally and socially.

Corporate Social Responsibility of Multinational Corporations in Developing Countries [Repost]

Adefolake O. Adeyeye – Corporate Social Responsibility of Multinational Corporations in Developing Countries: Perspectives on Anti-Corruption
2012 | ISBN: 1107013623 | English | 246 pages | PDF | 6.3 MB

The increasing importance of CSR means that companies must consider multi-stakeholder interests as well as the social, political, economic, environmental and developmental impact of their actions. However, the pursuit of profits by multinational corporations has led to a series of questionable corporate actions and the consequences of such practices are particularly evident in developing countries. Adefolake Adeyeye explores how CSR has evolved to aid the anti-corruption campaign. By examining voluntary rules applicable for curbing corruption, particularly bribery and analysing the domestic and extra-territorial laws of Nigeria, United Kingdom and the United States for holding corporations liable for bribery, she assesses the adequacy of international law’s approach towards corporate liability for bribery and explores direct corporate responsibility for international corruption. The roles of corporate governance, global governance and civil liability in curbing corporate corrupt practices are given special focus.

The last few decades have seen significant changes in the structure of business organizations, including downsizing, outsourcing and flattened management structures. The effects on employees have been considerable. In this context the importance of the psychological contract between employer and employee has been overlooked, and there is uncertainty about what can be done to bring about changes to this contract and ultimately the future of organizations. This important book considers the psychological aspects of organizational life, particularly in the context of firms’ ethical behaviour and its implications for corporate social responsibility. The authors consider the effects of corporate activity and change on individuals, not just in their working lives, but also in their family and social lives. They address a diverse number of topics from a variety of theoretical standpoints in an ongoing attempt to redress this neglected field of research.
