This week we are going to shift a little bit from Corporate Social Responsibility to Individual Social Responsibility.
In many cases it takes Individual SR to achieve Corporate SR. ISR forms the base for CSR because if everyone in a business organization does his or her part the widespread of things automatically fall into place. Trends show that big charitable organizations recorded high growth due to the SR efforts of individuals and not corporates or the government. ISR may be slightly impractical, especially in the modern competitive world, where everyone works for self-interest, but it will succeed if we take decisions based on what will benefit a large number of people and respect everyone’s fundamental rights. As individuals we can make our small contributions to society by donating money to trustworthy non-profit organizations,or saving our resources by reducing our consumption by doing things like switching off lights or computers when not in use.
