Nestlé

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

Many companies are already Socially Responsible, such as Nestlé.  Nestlé is a large corporate company, extending all over the globe. It has one of the most extensive “Social Responsibility” plans outlining all the things they dow for their communities all over the world. Nestlé strives to support the eight United Nations (UN) Millennium Development Goals through community-based partnerships that respond to local needs while harnessing local knowledge and capabilities.

The UN Millennium Development Goals and how Nestle supports them: 

As you can see Nestle does a number of things to remain socially responsible in all aspects of their business, This is great because it provided company brand awareness to the public as well as brand loyalty. So by helping the community they are also helping their selves!

Nestle does a number of other things to impact their social responsibility goals. I only scratched the surface. If you would like to learn more click the following links! 🙂

What is Social Responsibility?

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

So you’re probably wondering what is Social Responsibility?

Social responsibility is defined as a duty every individual or organization has to perform so as to maintain a balance between the economy and the ecosystem.

Corporate social responsibility, also known as CSR, is a form of corporate self-regulation that is integrated into a company’s business model. The goal of corporate social responsibility is to embrace responsibility for the company’s actions and encourage a positive impact through its activities on the environment, consumers, employees, communities, and general public.

CSR in may cases works to aid an organization’s mission as well as guide what the company stands for and will uphold to its consumers. CSR helps provide services for not only the community but for the company in itself. When a company becomes accountable in society it also gains a reputation that’s hard to put down.

Many companies and business are socially responsibly but often times we do not notice what they are doing aside from making money. Over the next few blog post I will talk about a few commonly known businesses/companies that are socially responsible, and how they do their part in society.

This semester I am enrolled in an Advance Internet Communications class. In this class we are required to create a blog about a specific topic and write a blog entry each week about that topic. The topic I have chosen to talk about is social responsibility.

Over the next few weeks I would like to talk about what exactly social responsibility is, why it is important to become socially responsible, and the steps to becoming socially responsible. Once I’ve covered the basic outline of social responsibility I will begin talking about companies that are socially responsible and examples of what they have done. Included with each blog post will be photos or slide shows I have created to help illustrate a topic, video/audio of myself explaining the topic or my personal thoughts about sed topic, or video/audio views I have shot of other people explaining their views.
