IMC Publication in Journal of Business Ethics

A paper by Marko Reimer (WHU – Otto Beisheim School and Management), Sebastiaan van Doorn (Warwick Business School, UK) and Mariano Heyden (Monash Business School, Australia) has been accepted for publication in Journal of Business Ethics. In this paper, Marko and his colleagues examine the influence of senior leadership on firms’ corporate social responsibility (CSR). In particular, they contend that functional experience complementarity between CEOs and TMTs in formulating and implementing CSR strategy may underlie differentiated strategies in CSR. The paper also highlights that conceptualizing CSR strategy as inherently multi-faceted explains why firms differ not only in their level of CSR, but in the specific patterns of CSR strategy.
