In recent years, there has been a noticeable upsurge in the popularity of Social Enterprise (SE) as a business model. Proof of this is the mushrooming of conferences and awards held or conferred on SEs.
Some business gurus have even opined that SE is the eventual progression or metamorphosis of companies practicing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Is this really the case? Can SE supplant CSR as the future of business organizations? Is society better served by SEs than by CSR-compliant firms? Can we expect more SEs to blossom and thereby lessen the importance of CSR?Aug 7 - csr se (Ed Amistad)
