Abstract

The new standard ISO 26000: Guidance on social responsibility offers a definition of what it means to be a socially responsible organization and why it is important that companies adopt this position. Because of their role and expertise, quality professionals can be of great assistance in advancing a corporate strategy that has both socially-focused and bottom-line benefits. This paper reviews key elements of the new standard to enhance understanding and explore its implications for quality professionals.This paper and its related survey are the result of a collaborative effort between ASQ and Manpower Professional.
