Corporate Social Responsibility programs
In 2013, numerous companies started 2013 by determining exactly how effective their branding was and how their customers as well as the general public perceive them. Considering that they are equal on all other fronts, companies that play an active-role in promoting their various corporate social-responsibility programs are more often than not, viewed more favorably than companies that don’t have many highly-visible programs.
Types of CSR
There are 2 types of corporate social responsibility that have to be considered. The first consists of companies providing resources and funding for different worthwhile social causes such as donating employee-time or money to charities. The second type involves setting-up an actual plan to provide services or produce products that will be in the best interests of the society. These include things such as corporate environmental initiatives, using safe materials in manufacture and design and factors such as economic development and job creation. The very best corporate social responsibility programs combine these 2 types of CSR to show a true commitment to a cause.
