Business Social Responsibility:A Review

Introduction

The paper is divided into two parts, first part of the paper is devoted to general description of BSR and its Importance.Another part of the paper is closely related with the main aim of the paper.The main idea is to discover and analyse those factors which have been influencing basic development of organisations today. Presently, there is an increasing concern with the social responsibilities of organisations. This is reflected in part by the extent of government action and legislation on such matters as, for instance, employment protection, equal opportunities, company’s acts, consumer law, product liability and safeguarding the environment (Mullins, 2005). Based on this the social responsibilities of organisations have turned into a legal requirement.

Business Stakeholders

Palmer and Hartley (2002) argue that business organisations should act in a socially responsible manner for two self-evident reasons: one philosophic and the other pragmatic. Philosophically, models of a responsible society require organisations to do their part along with the family and other social institutions (the schools, the religious institutions, etc.). Pragmatically, organisations have to take account of the society’s values, otherwise they will be isolated and therefore their long-term survival will be jeopardised.

Against this backdrop, business organisations have to think of their overall stakeholders, which include:

  1. Customers: The most immediate, influential and targeted stakeholder for any organisation is the customer or the consumer of its goods or services. There is an obvious controversy as to whether the customer is right in the goods and services they choose to buy from a company. It is true that sometimes customers do not recognise the long-term harmful effects of their choices such as in the case of tobacco, milk products for babies and expensive stereo equipment in the cars when safety equipment are relegated to optional extras (Palmer and Hartley, 2002). However, it is equally true that there is no ethical basis to judge whether provision of such goods and services is right or wrong.

Galbraith (1977) says the ‘customer is the king’ is no more than a myth. He maintains that the modern organisation exercises power to the extent of shaping tastes of consumers to its products. But this power is often buried down to leave nobler causes to surface. He likens this myth with the root cause of colonialism. For colonialism, we saw, was possible only because the myth of higher moral purpose regularly concealed the reality of lower economic interests. And the same is equally true with the moral cause of the business organisation.

Mullins (2005) argues that the responsibilities to consumers may be seen as no more than a natural outcome of good business. However, there are broader social responsibilities including:

a)      providing good value for money;

b)      the safety and durability of products/services;

c)      standard of after-sale service;

d)      Long-term satisfaction – serviceability, adequate supply of products/services, and spare parts and replacement parts.

e)      Fair standards of advertising and trading; and

f)        Full and unambiguous information to potential consumers.

  1. Employees: social responsibilities of the firms towards

Benefits of a College Education

Many high school students today are either dropping out of high school or are just not attending college because they do not know the benefits. The benefits of a college education are going to be discussed in this article and you should walk away wanting to go to college.

The biggest reason you should get a college education is because of the money. A college degree has been proven to pay more than those without. A survey was taken in 2003 and it showed that workers who had a bachelor’s degree were getting paid an average of $900 a week and those who graduated high school had an average $554 a week. That means that those with a bachelor’s degree are making $346 more a week than those with only a high school degree, or roughly a 60% jump in the average earning.

For those who are thinking about getting a job that does not require a college education you should find that it will still pay more if you do. Although you could get paid more you will probably find that you do not get many benefits such as health insurance with jobs that do not require a college degree.

The second benefit of a college education is the availability of jobs. Unlike previous generations the jobs being offered to those without a college education or even a high school diploma are dwindling. Jobs such as industrial jobs, trades, and skilled labor used to be prevalent before computer technology. Now jobs require a smaller workforce because of the technology.

The assembly line used to be a major part of why there were so many jobs in the different businesses but now those people are not required as much but rather there is a higher need for people in engineering, business administration, and management, and all those jobs usually require a college degree.

The final benefit of a college education is the types of jobs you will be able to do. There are many advantages for those who have a degree in science, manufacturing, and engineering fields. For example, those who want to work in science can now study highly specialized science degrees that work on environmental science and DNA analytics.

Not only will you be able to do almost any job if you get a college degree but you will also get the opportunity to explore jobs. This is perfect for those who do not know what they want to do for a career.

These are just some of the benefits of a college education and should be considered when you think about going to college.…

Moreover, we have seen that a large number of people depend on the internet to collect information, read news, listen to music and download movies, play games and also for work. Newspaper, Radio, Television and the internet- all form part of the media and are important in imparting education. Media offers culture, sports, information, entertainment, current affairs and education. Sometimes the impact of media is very high. For example, children love to watch the superheroes and sometimes try to copy their actions while playing. On the other hand, the impact may not be so vast or immediate. It happens gradually as children see and hear certain messages repeatedly. Some of the devastating advertisements include: Fighting and unnecessary quarrel, cigarettes and alcohol being shown as the symbol of heroism, style and attractive, but not deadly and unhealthy. Moreover, violation of laws is shown …
