In­creas­ingly, CSR is used as a form of pro­mot­ing a com­pany’s im­age through case-re­lated or other high-pro­file char­i­ta­ble spon­sor­ships. In the past decade, U.S. cor­po­rate spend­ing on CSR jumped from $945 mil­lion in 2006 to an es­ti­mated $16 bil­lion a year in 2016. Among these are some shin­ing ex­am­ples of com­pa­nies which pro­vide much-needed sup­port to wor­thy causes, and in re­turn in­crease their vis­i­bil­ity and im­prove em­ployee morale.

Some of these hor­rific ac­counts by ware­house work­ers, raise the ques­tion: Are we for­get­ting the hu­man in our pur­suit to higher prof­its?
