About this title:

Synopsis: Book by Jankowski, Katherine

From Booklist: This book brings together information on more than 1,000 successful public and private companies from more than 700 industries, selected on the basis of "social responsibility." The editors have judged the success of a company not only on the basis of financial gains, but also on whether the company has had a positive impact on employees, customers, and the community at large.

The guide contains a geographic index, industry index (organized by four-digit SIC), and a master index of companies. However, what sets this directory apart is the "Socially Responsible Indicator Index" --designed to identify companies by the criteria or social "screen" that qualified them for inclusion (e.g., community involvement, employee relations, product safety, minority hiring/promotion, concern for the environment). These broader categories are broken down into such specific ones as Employee Matching Gift Program, Recycling Program in Place, and Smoke-Free Environment. Additional information is drawn from the Domini Social 400 Index, which monitors the performance of 400 corporations that pass multiple, broad-based social screens. Each entry includes a brief description of the firm and its history, the number of employees, very brief financial information, the company's mission statement (where available), a paragraph describing "socially responsible activities," benefits of employment, job application procedures, names of officers, and other significant contacts with addresses and telephone numbers.

This book appears at a timely moment. Rating America's Corporate Conscience, published by the Council on Economic Profiles (Addison-Wesley, 1986), evaluates only 130 corporations and has not been updated. Companies That Care (Simon & Schuster, 1991) concentrate on 124 companies that are "family-friendly" to employees. Companies with a Conscience (Birch Lane, 1992) contains information on only 12 firms. No directory of this nature is comprehensive and accurate to the minute. Names of human resource contacts may change, and it is likely that some readers may disagree with how the editors have defined social responsibility. Nonetheless, the Job-Seekers Guide to Socially Responsible Companies brings together a significant amount of information that would otherwise be difficult and time-consuming to assemble. It will prove useful for both job seekers and interested investors. Recommended for academic and public libraries.
