Jehangir Ratanji Dadabhoy Tata or J.R.D. Tata has been the benchmark for business leaders globally due to his business acumen, integrity, ethics and social concern. He successfully demonstrated that an organization can be profitable without compromising on ethics and values. He was also the first to implement a host of employee welfare schemes in corporate India, which were later adopted by the Indian government as statutory requirements.
J.R.D. Tata: Orations on Business Ethics is an insightful and engaging volume that brings forth the views of eminent leaders from different walks of life, including J.R.D. Tata, Ramachandra Guha, Subroto Bagchi, Mark Tully, Tarun Das, Anil Kakodkar, among others. The book analyses how the concept of business ethics has moved well beyond financial integrity to include social and environmental responsibility, and how corporate social responsibility has gone mainstream.
This commemorative volume by XLRI–JRD Tata Foundation in Business Ethics is a tribute to
J.R.D. Tata and takes forward the Xavier School of Management’s (XLRI’s) mission of ‘abiding
commitment to improving the quality of life in organizations and society’.
