Good CC, for example, a company CEO of a HCO defines good corporate citizenship as meeting the growth and demands placed on health companies by society in an economically, environmentally and socially responsible manner (“The Power to Change: Mobilizing board leadership to deliver sustainable value to markets and society”, 2001).

Driven by passion, employee engagement is not just about meeting the job demands but to surpass its standards by giving their whole energy to the work itself so they can willingly help the company to succeed and prosper (Cook, 2008).

These engaged employees believe that their success should be attributed to a mutual commitment between them and the company and not just their personal commitment.
