This study characterises the relationships with local stakeholders that allow them to carry out shared practices of Corporate Social Responsibility in the district of Pataz, La Libertad Region, in the north of Peru, through two case studies and data collection that included 23 local stakeholders working with the Mining Company. This applied research included interviews and participatory observation. The findings indicated that 80% of local entrepreneurs have shown their interest in carrying out shared practices of corporate social responsibility in education, environment, health, water and sanitation, respectively. The study describes the contribution of artisanal mining enterprises and local supplier enterprises in shared practices of social responsibility, within the locations where they carry out their business activities. This research enriches knowledge of experiences that promote a shared culture of corporate social responsibility and how attending to the social demands from the perspective of the local community and business risks from the perspective of the mining company. These two sometimes conflicting perspectives coexist and complement one another for corporate sustainability after overcoming certain local and corporate paradigms which facilitates contributing to the sustainable development of the surrounding communities.</p> Percy Arrosquipa Copyright (c) 2021 Percy Arrosquipa http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://rauli.cbs.dk/index.php/jba/article/view/6416 Sun, 07 Nov 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Witches, Business & Culture: Anthropologists as Professional Strangers in the Boardroom https://rauli.cbs.dk/index.php/jba/article/view/6417 <p>This article collates personal insights from 30 years of research and consultancy in organisational anthropology. It has two target groups in mind: on the one hand, students who, after completing a degree in anthropology with a more classical focus, are wondering what they can do with and how they could ‘sell’ their professional skills outside the academy, in the field of organizational consulting or organizational development. On the other hand, it wants to open the black box of anthropological methods and procedures for decision makers in organizations, enabling them to decide whether and when the use of anthropological expertise in their own company is worthwhile, especially in times of global flows of people, goods and communication. Here, the free-flying witch stands as a metaphor for the anthropological position as a professional stranger at the interface of the corporate world.</p> Michael Schönhuth Copyright (c) 2021 Michael Schönhuth http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://rauli.cbs.dk/index.php/jba/article/view/6417 Sun, 07 Nov 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Fieldwork in a Foreign Culture: Business https://rauli.cbs.dk/index.php/jba/article/view/6418 <p>Fieldwork in a Foreign Culture: Business</p> Elisabeth Powell Copyright (c) 2021 Elisabeth Powell http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://rauli.cbs.dk/index.php/jba/article/view/6418 Sun, 07 Nov 2021 00:00:00 +0000
