REVIEWS

It is time for PR to contribute to the new CSR conversation about where we go next as we unlock the Isolation Economy. This book presents a compelling argument for that conversation to happen right now. Every organization who has not already needs to reimagine their CSR actions from a sustainability perspective. This book is a great resource for that change.

As an advocate of sustainable CSR, this is a book I have been waiting for. Sprinkled with numerous examples and mesmerizing interviews, Sangeeta outlines with utmost clarity the definition of meaningful CSR and why it is not and cannot be a public relations tool. A must-read book for those seeking to understand what meaningful CSR is all about as the world clings to a new normal in the pandemic, Sangeeta has crafted an enduring narrative that is heartwarming and at the same time hard-hitting. A book that will surely outlast the pandemic!

The world is being required to wake up to the fundamental truth that we are indeed connected – separation and concepts of ‘I’, ‘Me’, and ‘Mine’ have got us into this mess. It is time not only to realize but to live the truth: that we are not separate from each other or from our planet. Perhaps then we have a chance to heal the scars of racial division and planetary destruction.

Dedication

In 2012, the Chinese company Huawei Technologies overtook Ericsson to become the world’s largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer, firmly establishing itself on the world business map. Today, it has over 170,000 employees worldwide and in 2014 the company generated a remarkable profit of $5.5 billion. Whilst research and development and the technology that results from it are core drivers of Huawei’s success, the company’s amazing growth is also determined by its human resource strategy. This is based on a “customer-first” attitude, the belief that obtaining opportunities is through hard work and, above all, “a dedication to do the best in anything we do”. How Huawei promotes this dedication amongst its workforce is the subject of this important book. Through original incentive systems, employee ownership and the mentality to act like a boss, Huawei has managed to create a culture of dedication that has become the bedrock of its growth today.
