What is CSR?
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is the concept that a business needs to be concerned with more than just profit. Corporate social responsibility initiatives are standards and measures that business put in place to benefit society.
CSR is most commonly based on sustainability in the four sustainability categories:
- Ethical Business Practices:
- Economic Responsibility
- Environmental Responsibility
- Philanthropic Initiatives
Many aspects of corporate responsibility also involve giving back to the community, which can be undertaken by volunteer employee teams and in cooperation with foundations. Working together for a non-business community cause can have a strong, positive impact on strengthening interpersonal relationships in the workplace, as well as development new relationships outside the business realm.
Why consider CSR for your company?
Businesses that show a commitment to the community and the environment can attract customers who share these values. The good the company does is part of the perceived value of its products and services and can result in higher customer satisfaction.
The main disadvantage of CSR is that its costs fall disproportionally on small businesses. Major corporations can afford to allocate a budget to CSR reporting, but this is not always open to smaller businesses with between 10 and 200 employees. A small business can use social media to communicate its CSR policy to customers and the local community. But it takes time to monitor exchanges and could involve hiring extra personnel that the business may not be able to afford.
