Business, but not only for profit

A recently published book summarises principles and guidelines to enhance human capitals in enterprises

Enterprises that exist not only for profit but also as agents of social development, as opposed to “exploitative” enterprises devoted to increase their own budget rather than the balanced development of an economic and social system. These are still the two extremes in today’s debate on the role of enterprises, their functions and the impact they can have – a real matter of corporate culture bent on social responsibility or reduced to mere management strategy.

The recently published Il capitale umano in azienda. Prospettive di valore e modelli di riferimento (Human capital in companies. Prospective values and reference models), collaboratively written by Paolo Ceruzzi, Enrico Sorano, Alberto Sardi and Francesco Natalini, provides a significant contribution to the debate by bringing some clarity to this complex topic.

The volume – a little more than 130 pages – begins by looking at Pope Francis’s criticism of an economic system based on profit, which he defined as a ‘voracious model’. Indeed, according to the Pope, the precarious conditions of our country are mainly due to an economic model that we have been following for too long a time, profit-oriented and short-sighted, based on the delusion of an infinite financial growth – a system that can also be defined as disastrous.

A denunciation of corporate models contradicting those others that, on the other hand, nurture the improvement of social, environmental and economic wealth and well-being of both enterprises and society in the long run.

Thus, this book acts as a kind of guide leading readers to understand that enterprises and corporate practices focused on the creation of corporate models whose aim is the improvement of the wealth and well-being of workers will, in turn, engender the improvement of economic, social and environmental wealth and well-being.

As such, this is a work that provides readers with the expert tools required to comprehend and implement corporate approaches different than those merely focused on making a good profit.
