This paper analyses the impact of CSR initiatives in restructuring
processes. It assesses how steps taken by company managers combine with
legislative interventions and shareholders' initiatives with a view to
promoting workers' rights. It is based on the case study of a Swiss
company from the metalworking sector, Tornos, which has been for 20
years in a process of permanent restructuring. First the legal and
conventional resources available in Switzerland are listed, then how
Tornos mobilised these tools in its situation is analysed. The
conclusion summarises the main lessons with regard to the impact of CSR
in the Swiss context.
