by Aman Singh Das | December 14, 2010

  • My Vault

What will be some lasting impressions from 2010? What were some of the key stories that may have changed the state of business forever?

What were some trends that defined corporate social responsibility and sustainability in 2010, as a corporate strategy as well as a distinct profession of its own?

How did discussion and debate on sustainability come to command such dedicated space on mainstream media? (Remember the now infamous pieces by Dr. Aneel Karnani in the and Chrystia Freeland in ?)

And what career choices are opening up for students and job seekers as result of this heightened attention? How are recruitment and hiring teams responding?

These and more will be some of the topics of discussion here In Good Company in coming weeks as we wrap up 2010.
