Puzzles to ponder… Boomers, boomers, boomers…everyone talks so much about the baby boomers. It seems like companies, politicians and organizations all cater to the boomers and yet, I read something about the disadvantage of being a boomer. What could possibly be the disadvantage? How could the Tylenol crisis of 1982 when seven people died after ingesting Tylenol laced with cyanide possibly have ended up boosting the company’s relationship with stakeholders? Can public companies who face intense pressure to perform financially really afford to care about how ethical their employees are – or do their employees just need to make the numbers? All this stuff about corporate social responsibility is a bit too much for me. As a shareholder, I expect a business to focus on making money and providing me a decent return!
