Persons who work for firms together with their family members make up the society in which corporate entities operate. The traditional African society enjoyed relative peace and tranquility as well as a relatively low crime rate. However, the current apparently perturbing exhibition of undesirable behaviours in the Nigerian society calls for intervention by responsible corporate citizens to look into the social and emotional malaise and retool their internal policies and programmes to counteract any external threat such a menace may pose. This paper is a workplace approach to mitigating contemporary socio-behavioural ills through the management of Home-role and Work- role balance of employees for the socio-behavioural wellbeing of the society. It is an attempt at triggering new capacities in firms towards rethinking their Corporate Social Responsibility stance by embarking on viable workplace grown solutions to societal challenges and for the country to have a renewed hope for socio-cultural regeneration.
