Du paternalisme au managerialisme : les entreprises en quête de responsabilité sociale

    This article confronts two attempts to form socially responsible organizations. The paternalism of the end of the 19th century introduced the owner as a father for his employees. The current Managerialism presents the managers as administrator citizens vis-à-vis their stakeholders. These two systems aim at the harmony of interests between social classes, the happiness of workers and the autoregulation of organizations. Corporate social responsibility marks an additional threshold of the organizational influence, not only in the management of human resources, but also in the relationship with the society. It marks also a change in the form of founder belief: yesterday religious, today administrative. Codes JEL : P12, L21, L23, L53
