Institute of Corporate Responsibility, did you attract the right chairman in Johan Raslan?

Chin Kwai Fatt, responsible?
"An advantage of adopting responsible practices within an organisation is the ability to attract and retain the right workforce", said Institute of Corporate Responsibility Malaysia (ICRM) chairman Datuk Johan Raslan.

In this StarBiz article, "Responsible practices can attract right workforce", the Chairman of PwC Malaysia, Dato Johan Raslan, also says "More and more young people are attracted to companies that have good values and do things in a sustainable manner."

Johan Raslan speaking about corporate responsibility on the 23rd of November 2010, with  Ng Yin Ching.

Johan Raslan, tell us how your own company, PwC Malaysia, can attract and retain the right workforce, with all the unanswered allegations on your practices here?

Consider what the young people out there will think, when Chin Kwai Fatt and yourself, as the top two of PwC Malaysia, continue to remain silent, despite this open challenge to deny the allegations or resign.

We challenged you so, "PricewaterhouseCoopers Malaysia employs more than two thousand people, and your continued silence undermines your staff, as they cannot answer on your behalf when asked about fraud and scandal involving their commanders-in-chief. In fact your staff should force you to answer so that they can once again hold their heads up high and walk proud as a part of the PwC family.

You owe answers not only to your firm and your staff, but to your clients, your fellow auditors, your friends and family, the regulators you have compromised, the punter sitting in front of the board praying for a sign to buy or sell, the taxpayers, and the good honest hardworking citizen who has placed his faith in you to safeguard the integrity of a significant part of what makes this country's economy viable."

Would you define taking responsibility as staying in the forefront and answering all questions? Or does the school of thought you subscribe to say that it is okay to pass the buck to someone else?

3 months later, Ng Yin Ching, has to speak to StarBiz about Corporate Responsibility, minus the Chairman.

As the Chairman since 2006 for the Institute of Corporate Responsibility, Johan Raslan, how much have you learnt about the true meaning of the word responsibility? 

To what extent will you say that the actions of Chin Kwai Fatt and yourself over the years, have followed all three precepts of People, Profit and the Planet, which you have spoken about?

Or does your take on responsibility mean that you should only care about Profit? While the People and the Planet, the rules of law and profession, legal and ethical behaviour, can be damned?
