Juggling Corporatism

Another interesting movie that I watched today at Broadway Nottingham.

It was advisable for the Year 3 students to watch this movie which relates to their module "Business Ethics", but it rang my bell of attention to willingly spend my Wednesday evening and have a go at the movie; after a cup of caramelatte, accompanied by the article "India cannot run as fast as China without further reform" [The Economist].

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the main theme of the movie, and it is one of the important functions in an organisational structure to ensure the competitiveness and to survive in the fast-changing world of globalisation.

At the end of the movie, this message was planted in every student's mind as all of us are the potential workforce in the corporate world: juggle your career and the commitments to your loved ones, in the most delicate manner, and professionally.

A season of films about social and ethical issues in business, programmed in conjunction with the International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (ICCSR) at Nottingham University Business School. There will be an introduction before each screening and a discussion afterwards.

Wed 7 - Work Hard, Play Hard. Violence Des Echanges En Milieu Tempere (with English subtitles)

Synopsis: Philippe is a young business graduate who starts work at a management consultancy firm. Assigned to audit a company on the verge of a takeover, his task is to survey the staff and decide on imminent redundancies. Initially he is reluctant to get involved, but eventually begins to realise that the hard-headed approach of his supervisor and mentor is the best way to achieve results, and adopts the mantra of the company 'work hard, play hard'.

And I had constructive arguments and exchanged of ideas with Rohan on our way back to Victoria Center.
