      This article explores corporate social responsibility in family businesses. In particular, the research investigates family businesses in relation to a wide variety of constituent or stakeholder groups. It reports the preliminary results of focused interviews with forty-two small and medium-sized Dutch family businesses. The data obtained from content analysis suggest that a mix of corporate social responsibility perspectives, including economic benefits, conformance to ethical and legal expectations and philanthropic as well as community involvement, help to explain the nature of relationships with, and behaviors toward, various constituency groups. The family character of the business most frequently impacts employee, client, and supplier relationships. Statistically significant interaction effects are reported for the following moderator variables: generation of the owner; company tenure in the community; community size; company size; and inclusion of the family surname in the business name. Interaction effects were also tested for industry type and gender. The article also outlines some practical implications of the findings and suggests directions for future research.

    • $1 trillion in super fund assets hidden from the public

      Dan Gocher (Market Forces, 2016-09-21)
      Would you buy a house, not knowing what suburb it’s in? Or how many bedrooms it has? Or if it’s new or old? That’s what many of Australia’s largest super funds are asking you to do with your money – trust them. For many people, super will be the most significant asset they ever own. Super is the only asset in which you’re required to invest, in some cases not in a fund of your choosing, yet you’re almost never told what assets you own. According to polling commissioned by Market Forces, a whopping 86% of Australians believe they have a right to know where their super is invested. This analysis of Australia’s fifty largest super funds found that 83% of assets are undisclosed, equating to nearly $1 trillion dollars. That bears repeating – $1 trillion dollars of assets – undisclosed. Only one super fund in the entire country discloses its entire portfolio – Energy Super. Only three other funds disclose more than 50% of their portfolio – HOSTPlus, Cbus and VicSuper. Average disclosure is just 17% across the fifty largest funds. Nineteen funds disclose nothing of their investments. Nothing. How much information does your fund disclose?
