Associate Professor Sriram Narayanan, Assistant Professor Brian Jacobs and PhD Student Richard Kraude recently had a manuscript accepted for publication at Production and Operations Management.
The title is “Operational productivity, corporate social performance, financial performance, and risk in manufacturing firms.” In this work, they find that if a firm’s operational productivity is poor, corporate social performance is of limited benefit to financial performance or risk. However, at or above a threshold level of operational productivity, firms can use corporate social performance to build upon it to yield further improvements in financial performance and reductions in risk.
