Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a vital element of your company culture and, in some ways, also a product of it. While CSR might seem like a straightforward concept, it has a broad range of interpretations that can make it look very different from business to business. For maximum results, you should understand the relationship between corporate social responsibility and your company culture.
Corporate Social Responsibility and Company Culture
What is culture? The culmination of shared goals, attitudes and beliefs. Culture is what makes your company so special. It can be influenced by a number of things at your business, including your management style, work environment, ethics, expectations and values. It makes sense that corporate social responsibility is tied directly to company culture, as CSR is a company’s commitment to being socially accountable to itself, employees, stakeholders and the world.
It Shows You Care
CSR shows your employees and the public that you care. Whether it’s painting a school or taking a hard look at how your business could be more environmentally friendly, your CSR initiatives show that you care.
