This subject explores the impact that the construction industry has on the people that work in it and on the communities in which it builds. Students critically debate contemporary issues relating to the relationship between business, employees and society, tackling subjects within the broader field of corporate social responsibility and human resource management. This subject aims to create a new generation of leaders in helping the construction industry to make a more positive contribution to society.

Students' knowledge and understanding is gained through lectures; discussions with leaders in this field; completing a major industry-based team assignment; making group and individual presentations communicating students' recommendations; and through the student's independent research and readings.
