This project is broken down into 5 parts, this section is just one part of it I need completed.
I am open to any two companies, such as uber and lyft or any other large company with a similar local company.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR): Corporate initiative to assess and take responsibility for the company’s effects on the environment and impact on social welfare. The term generally applies to company efforts that go beyond what may be required by regulators or environmental protection groups.
Corporate social responsibility may also be referred to as “corporate citizenship” and can involve incurring short-term costs that do not provide an immediate financial benefit to the company, but instead promote positive social and environmental change. (www.investopedia.com)
Purpose of Assignment: It is a commonly held belief that many smaller businesses appreciate their customers more, hold themselves to higher environmental standards, and value the communities in which they serve. It is the purpose of this assignment for students to research, analyze, and make rational decisions on the best ways for companies to uphold CSR.
Students will work individually, in order to gain a better understanding of how CSR impacts all areas of a business’ operations. Students will not only research to see what companies have done in the past and what issues have arisen, but also make recommendations for future decisions based on the critical thinking model utilized in this course.
Goals of Assignment 1. Research two (2) companies in the same industry. One company will be a large national or multinational firm, and the other will be a local or regional company.
2. Use the various models of CSR to analyze the decisions and operations of each company.
3. Provide opportunities to display Critical Thinking outside of the classroom and with real‐world situations.
