Summary Written for everyone in business who remains uninspired by run-of-the-mill management books, Corporate Compassion provides an honest and humane perspective of the contemporary workplace
James J. Lynch argues that companies must treat employees, shareholders, suppliers, local communities and the environment with the same respect with which they treat their customers. In today's business world, it is dangerous for an organization to be seen as heartless or clumsy in the way it treats people. Reputation and revenue can be lost simultaneously. Corporate Compassion shows how executives and personnel managers in business can learn from a range of other fields, such as charities and voluntary organizations, and it examines issues like employee loyalty and demographic trends in order to map out future developments for good business practice. Packed with self-assessment tests and real-life case studies, this book shows how to reinforce competitive advantage and secure long-lasting success for businesses and their stakeholders
