Corporate social responsibility: a competitive factor for business success
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a theme that many companies of all types and sizes are going to face in order to formalize or normalize, especially within the most complex realities, the practices that regulate relations with the stakeholders and which are not always identified as such, even if they are socially responsible.
Acting in a socially responsible manner means to adopt strategies and policies oriented towards quality and ability to meet the needs of clients without losing sight of the community, the environment and the internal and external subjects involved in their activities.
The sustainability report, that is the reporting and communication of what has been implemented by the companies in the social-environmental field, can be reported within a system of social responsibility that must be efficient, measurable, oriented towards dialogue and comparison between the parties involved as well as the maintenance and improvement over time.
The tools used by the companies are many and are classified within the socially responsible activities that are transversal with respect to the business processes and are decisive for reinforcing consensus and corporate image. It ranges from welfare initiatives in favor of the staff to the management systems for the prevention of corruption aimed at ensuring compliance with the laws applicable to their own reality.
