The Influence of Institutional Logics on Corporate Responsibility Toward Employees
Michelle Westermann-Behaylo, Shawn L. Berman, and Harry J. Van Buren, III
Business Society published 28 March 2013, 10.1177/0007650313476934
Read the abstract...
Focusing on corporate responsibility (CR) toward employees, this article discusses how multilayered institutional logics affect the relationship between the firm and its employee stakeholders. It considers what constitutes CR toward employees and explores the institutional logics that can shape whether employers treat their employees as merely means to a strategic end or as ends in themselves. Specifically, the article examines market-, state-, professional-, and firm-based institutional logics that influence how employers treat their employees. The conclusion suggests that external institutional logics both enable and constrain firms to adopt a more instrumental relationship with their employees. However, some forms of organizational identity may generate firm-based institutional logics that enable firms to resist these pressures. Suggestions for future research focusing on the institutional and organizational drivers behind understanding CR toward employees are offered.
Congratulations to Dr. Harry Van Buren for also receiving a best paper award at the European Academy of Management (Business & Society Interest Group; Accounting, Auditing, & Control for Sustainability track) for his paper entitled Accounting for Stakeholders with Ron Mitchell, Ed Freeman, and Michelle Greenwood.

Dr. DelCampo Quoted in UT San Diego
A recent edition of UT San Diego published an article on the increasing contribution of Hispanics to the growth of the labor market, pointing to the statistic of more workers comfortable with voluntarily identifying themselves as Latino to their employers, who then report the data to the labor bureau. Professor Rob DelCampo stated: "We are seeing the job market equalize in terms of race, gender, ethnicity. The problem is we don't see it all the way up and down the corporate ladder. The workforce is changing, and the status quo isn't going to hack it anymore, in terms of hiring practices, workplace culture and outreach. You have to be 10 steps ahead of the economy."
