HR Functions and Coca-Cola Business Goals and Objectives

There have been 179 major human rights violations of Coca-Cola's workersùall of which the company refuses to take responsibility for; that figure includes nine murders, as well as the abduction and torture of the family members of union activists, and even paramilitary violence against workers (Mokhiber & Weissman, 8). Coca-Cola's HR department must be either complicitous orùif it truly does try to defend workers against such violationsùineffectual and ignored. When HR is involved in organizational decision-making and allowed to weigh in on ethical issues, it can steer a company away from such pitfalls. HR's charter should be more than protecting the company's interests; it should also protect the workers' interests, at the very least against the egregious practices condoned by Coca-Cola's executives.
