Abstract or Summary
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become a pervasive focus of organizations and is regarded, alongside sustainability and financial profit, as a key element of a triple bottom-line approach. Corporations are realizing that CSR cannot be approached compartmentally but instead must be ubiquitous across departments and operations. Therefore, it is in the organization’s best interest to hire employees who are socialized in the CSR culture. This study used interviews from Enactus sponsoring companies, OSU Enactus current/alumni, OSU Enactus project partners, and participant observation to investigate the links between corporate support of socially responsible organizations and the development of appropriate skills and capacities (key performance indicators- KPIs developed through involvement in social-initiative organizations) that can translate into a pool of socially responsible employees. Results show the effectiveness of Enactus in producing benefits for sponsoring companies and reinforce Enactus’s ability to produce candidates with desired skills and capacities.
