CSR – Project Management
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been defined in various ways by scholars, authors and institutions, but one of the most ideal definition has been provided by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, which says “Corporate Social Responsibility is the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local communities and society at large.”
Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability is at the heart of business and it is increasingly becoming an integral part of strategy of Companies. Governments, Companies and Communities alike feel greater need of initiatives which promises to bridge inequity and bring about inclusive growth.
The Companies Bill 2012 asks companies to report on the earmarked 2% of average net profit of the preceding three years for corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities.
Benefits of CSR
Risk Management :
Engagement in CSR activities helps the companies manage emerging social risks which may emerge as an offshoot of their operational activities. As a result the companies get a social license to operate, which helps maintain a positive image in the market and winning the confidence of people.
Strengthened Brand Positioning :
Through CSR, companies can positively influence the perception of the people. Thus strengthening the brand image in the eyes of the consumers, community, regulators, employees and the suppliers.
Increased Sales and Market share :
Consumers like to be associated with a company, which is ethical and has a positive image. Many companies have become innovative and started contributing a certain portion of their sales to certain cause. This has 2 fold benefits; it increases the brand image as well as helps in differentiating the product from their direct competitors and hence increases in sales.
Increased ability to attract, motivate and retain employees :
CSR helps companies to be known as a responsible corporate citizen with sensitivity towards social and environmental issues. Such an image of the corporate helps employees and communities ally with the corporate Vision and Mission, as they all feel alike and contribute towards a common goal.
