Social Responsibility

Social Responsibility

Task:

General Suggestions
•    Think in terms of 3—have at least three for each section—meaning discuss three types of regulatory or leadership issues, etc.
•    The strategy you develop should include a focus on environmental considerations, financially viable business practices, ethical decision making on the part of the leadership who will implement your plan, and should also be in compliance with all government regulations that affect the industry.
•    For each of the four sections areas below you want to describe the current way the company operates and make recommendations for socially responsible actions.  Also, you can recommend a new direction for the company.
o    Make sure with each item you not only name the consideration, but also that you explain your recommendation.
o    What are some potential examples that illustrate this component?
o    Think about both simple and complex possibilities.

Environmental Considerations & Recommendations
•    Does your business look at all of the impact a product can have on the environment?
•    Pollution prevention?  Recycling? Conservation initiatives?
•    Why type of technology does your business use – does it have an environmental impact?
•    In your learning resources:
o    Chapter 3 (“Corporate Social Responsibility”)
o    Chapter 18 (“The Community and the Corporation”)
o    Chapter 10 (“Ecology and Sustainable Development in Global Business”)
o    Chapter 11 (“Managing Environmental Issues”)
o    www.epa.gov
o    MindEdge Module 2
Ethical Leadership Considerations & Recommendations
•    Managers play a big part in ethical or unethical actions.
•    What values do your managers have?
•    What have you noticed about younger managers and their view of ‘greening’ of America?
•    What organizational elements does your company have in being a socially responsible and ethical company?
o    Is your management involved?  How?
o    Sustainability reports—does it trickle down the entire company?
o    In what ways does leadership set the model for employees in terms of ethical behavior?
•    What might foster ethics within a business?
o    Policies or procedures

Organizational Viability Considerations & Recommendations
•    The viability of a business is measured by its long-term survival, and its ability to have sustainable profits over a period of time.  What steps or measures can the business take to ensure its future profitability (thus viability) while also considering human and environmental factors?
•    Profitability is also tied to people and planet. For example, can providing a healthy work environment for employees and/or being “eco-friendly” be cost effective?
•    Seek out innovative ideas and opportunities to lower costs while incorporating your social responsibility strategies.
•    In your learning resources:
o    The three Ps, “people, planet, profit”: MindEdge Module 4
o    Sustainable management: MindEdge Module 3 and 5

Legal & Regulatory Considerations & Recommendations
•    Legal Requirements vs. Corporate Social Responsibility:  companies can choose to go beyond the legal standard and strive for higher levels of social responsibility.
•    What does your company do that goes above the required legal standard?
•    What government (state, federal or local) regulations impact your specific industry? What laws regulate your daily business activity?
o    For example: construction industry = OSHA; medical industry = HIPPA; education = FERPA
•    Is your company in compliance with government regulations?
o    If not, recommend what can be done to bring the company to compliance?
•    Helpful web resources:www.law.cornell.edu andwww.epa.gov

Scenario:

You are tasked with developing a social responsibility strategy for a client. This is an important assignment as business organizations large and small, domestically and internationally, address issues of sustainability and social responsibility. To be sure, twenty-first century business practices will demand nothing less from companies seeking to add to their triple bottom line (people, planet, profit).

The strategy you develop should include a focus on environmental considerations, sustainable business practices, ethical decision making on the part of the leadership who will implement your plan, and should also be in compliance with all government regulations that affect the industry.

For this task, you will select your client from your actual place of employment, a local small business, or a well-known public company.

Note: Any information that would be considered confidential, proprietary or personal in nature should not be included. Do not include the actual names of people, suppliers, the company, or other identifiable information. Fictional names should be used. Also, company-specific data, including financial information, should not be included but should be addressed in a general fashion as appropriate.

Task:

Note: Your submission may be in a variety of formats (e.g., report, multimedia presentation, video presentation). If a multimedia presentation is selected, speaker notes should be used to include the necessary level of detail.

A.  Develop a social responsibility strategy for your chosen client which includes the following components:
1.  Environmental considerations and recommendations (planet)
2.  Ethical leadership considerations and recommendations (people)
3.  Organizational viability considerations and recommendations (profitability)
4.  Legal and regulatory considerations and recommendations

Note: This may be a strategy for the company’s current product line or service and current business objectives, or it may be a strategy that recommends a new direction for the company.

B.  If you use sources, include all in-text citations and references in APA format.

Note: Please save word-processing documents as *.rtf (Rich Text Format) or *.pdf (Portable Document Format) files.

Note: When bulleted points are present in the task prompt, the level of detail or support called for in the rubric refers to those bulleted points.

Note: For definitions of terms commonly used in the rubric, see the Rubric Terms web link included in the Evaluation Procedures section.

Note: When using sources to support ideas and elements in a paper or project, the submission MUST include APA formatted in-text citations with a corresponding reference list for any direct quotes or paraphrasing. It is not necessary to list sources that were consulted if they have not been quoted or paraphrased in the text of the paper or project.

Note: No more than a combined total of 30% of a submission can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. For tips on using APA style, please refer to the APA Handout web link included in the General Instructions section.
