MT140M5-5: Discuss the purpose of corporate social responsibility and ethics.
GEL-7.02: Apply ethical reasoning to ethical issues within the field of management.
The Module 5 assessment requires you to consider the role of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in an organization’s strategy. CSR requires companies to ensure they are always working towards four pillars of societal accountability: economic, legal, ethical, and philanthropic.
Using the material from Chapter 4 of the text as well as your own independent research, you will draft an informative essay that makes the connection between a theoretical understanding of CSR and how it is reflected in the strategies of a real organization.
Using your research skills, locate and define the CSR policy of one well-known public company.
Referring to your selected company’s CSR initiatives, identify which pillars of responsibility they seem most focused on: economic, legal, ethical, or philanthropic. Give at least two specific examples.
Research the mission statement of your chosen company. Describe how the company’s mission statement aligns with their CSR policy. Give at least two specific examples.
Utilize at least two external sources as part of your research. Sources might include your textbook (M Management 6th Edition by Thomas Bateman), the company’s website, or another resource found in the university Library.
