Engaging Small Firms in CSR

There is a good deal of interest about the views of small firms (SMEs) with regard to corporate social responsibility (CSR) but relatively little information on this topic. Ashridge research conducted earlier this year examined the best ways to engage SMEs with volunteering. Volunteering is only a part of the broader CSR agenda but we believe our findings are relevant more generally, both to academics and to others interested in how best to engage SMEs in corporate responsibility.
