Corporate Social Responsibility: Historical Development

...Corporate Social Responsibility: Historical Development, Concepts and Practices Historical Development of CSR Carroll (2008, pp. 19-46) relates that despite the provision of schemes prior to the 1950’s to improve workers’ conditons, it is difficult to conclude that the development of social programs by organzations for their workforce was solely as a result of the altruistic nature of the company. The establishment of these social welfare schemes served the dual purpose of reducing social ills which in turn increased efficiency in the workplace. Wren (2005), management hitosrian, cites two cases which depict debates sparked by the question of limted charter powers and the concept of management as a trustee of the stockholders’ property working together to create the 19th century legal basis for corporate philanthropy. In the first case, the company wanted to compensate employees due to job loss. Based on court rulings which would not be aligned with the concepts of CSR, the directors of the company should be more concerned with spending the company’s money solely for the purposes of business and that it should not be used for charity. In the second case however, the court’s decision would be more in line with CSR’s concept of social good where the purchase of land for a school, church and other social institutions would benefit the community in general. These cases highlight the ambiguity that is inherent in CSR’s definition in an attempt to distinguish between......

...Ma. Shiela N. Sales 3MM Corporate Social Responsibility Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a company’s sense of responsibility towards the community and environment for both ecological and social in which it operates. This obligation is seen to extend beyond the statutory obligation to comply with legislation and sees organizations voluntarily taking further steps to improve the quality of life for employees and their families as well as for the local community and society at large. And with the forum last Tuesday, February 18, 2013 about CSR by Sir Binide I learned that as a marketing student and someday I will work in a business, we should always know that we have lot of responsibilities to perform not just only with our specific tasks in the organization where we belong but with the community and society where our organization belongs. And with any company whether profit or non-profit should give back whatever it can contribute for the development and betterment of its society and for me that is what Corporate Social Responsibility is all about. Corporate Social Responsibility is also a growing importance to government and community as they promise to meet challenges of social problems within the changing welfare environments. It can also play a role in building customer loyalty based on distinctive ethical value and business service organizations can benefit too from building a reputation for integrity and best practice. So businesses should be more......

Corporate Social Responsibility

...Corporate social responsibility statements are effective ways of ensuring multi-national companies act ethically.   Discuss For the past few years there has been lots of discussion about Corporate Social Responsibility. Most of the multinational companies issue every year a report on their practices. They try to get involved into communities, fight the poverty in the third world countries and donate millions of ponds every year to charities to as they say “build the better future”. But are their corporate social responsibility statements effective ways of ensuring that multinational entities act ethically? From my point of viewview, CSR statements do not ensure that practices of companies obey the rules of business ethics and I am going to present a few arguments for. Corporate Social Responsibility is fairly recent termterm and maybe that is why there is no consistent definition for it. Most multinational companies use different terms in their reports, for example Shell defines it as ‘sustainable development’, Ford uses the phrase ‘connecting with society’, Diageo prefers the termterm ‘corporate citizenship’. All these expressions, although they have different meanings, are related to Corporate Social Responsibility but because of the proliferation of approaches, every company can put emphasis on something different, creating therefore complexity and confusion. What is more, the socially responsible company not only complies with minimum requirements of the law, but......

Human resource management plays unique role in CSR, as they are responsible for recruiting staff, training the staff, giving compensations, maintaining health & safety, and labor relations. So if company follows the above apparatus consciously, they can create a safe environment for employees, contribute money to society and community, and gain good reputation which lead to higher profits.

The social and environmental problems caused by international business have emerged for a period, however, they only being seen as an important issue under the pressure of global problems such as climate change, poverty, human rights violation and HIV.
