In addition to CSR and employee engagement, this blog will also touch on other topics in business. These topics will relate CSR and social impact to technology, improvement of business processes, consumer/community experience, and of course employee engagement.
Finally, I hope that this blog encourages connection with professional colleagues, friends, and peers to engage in feedback and discussion.
