Corporate Social Responsibility: How Can Learning Contribute

Annick Renaud Coulon
One emerging element in executive education has been corporate social responsibility. How can the learning organization encourage this sort of behavior, which ultimately has a positive effect on the bottom line? The idea that education is the key to everything isn't new. Plato was a fervent critic of the civilization in which he lived, which was rife with corruption, and saw education as a means of creating the ideal society. Confucius believed that education not only offered a means to establish a reign of virtue, but could also change human nature and improve it in a qualitative way. In some ways, the world hasn't changed much since antiquity. Human behavior - its foundations, selfishness and selflessness - remain unchanged. Virtue is still a much sought after commodity, and education is the best means of finding solutions to the world's ills.

Corporate Social Responsibility Revisited

Brian Summerfield
A few months ago, I wrote an article for CLO magazine’s Executive Briefings newsletter about the role of the learning function in corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives. In the piece, I talked to Annick Renaud-Coulon, who has promoted the idea of using the corporate university as a means to CSR ends in her native Europe and beyond. (You can find that article here.) In the story, I asked her if there is any substantial benefit to employing the corporate university in the service of social responsibility that goes any farther than being a feel-good exercise. She said that pressure from organizations’ stakeholders (in both Europe and North America) to enhance and expand CSR programs is rising, and those organizations would have to use existing resources in new ways to improve in this area. Renaud-Coulon maintained that one of the best resources for this is the corporate university, which is a powerful lever for effecting changes in views and behaviors.

Can Corporate Universities Play a Role in CSR? Should They?

Brian Summerfield
Members of Generation Y — and to a lesser extent, Gen Xers — are commonly said to desire two things from their employers: robust development opportunities and a sense of social responsibility. These corporate “carrots” are fine by themselves, but never the twain shall meet, right? Maybe not. Annick Renaud-Coulon, an international thought leader in learning and development and the principal founder of the Global Council of Corporate Universities, believes there can and should be a relationship between the two. In fact, she’s spent a substantial part of her recent career advocating greater involvement from corporate universities in their organizations’ CSR initiatives.
