Credible CSR and Purpose in Work

Prof. Lea Cassar discusses with Prof. Nicola Lacetera her research on corporate social responsibility (CSR) and the meaning of work: People can derive meaning by working for a mission they believe in. By investing in CSR, companies can make their mission more social (and thus more "meaningful"), thereby increasing workers' motivation and performance. However, CSR initiatives which are strategically done in order to increase profit can backfire. Listen to part 1 of the podcast here.
