Click to print Opens in new window I take little credit for the intelligence of this post. Through these studies, the five below drivers have been articulated as those most germane to the promotion of CSRbut I ask you, my favorite TriplePundit readers, are there others?
Have motivating factors been missed? CSR becomes more relevant as economies grow and stabilize. Therefore, the greatest attention to CSR is found in developed countries.
Stable work and security provide the luxury of choice and socially responsible activism. No such luxury exists when basic needs are in question.
Perhaps the most obvious and most talked about of the drivers, concerns over pollution, waste, natural resource depletion, climate change and the like continue to fuel the CSR discussion and heighten expectations for proactive corporate action.
After all, it is in the best interest of firms to protect for the sustainable future the long-term availability of the resources on which they depend. Globalization has had considerable impacts.
First, the increased wealth and power of multinational corporations has led to questions on the decreased authority of the nation-state, especially in developing areas. Further, cultural differences have added to the complexity of CSR as expectations of acceptable behavior vary regionally.
With increased power comes increased responsibility and globalization has fueled the need to filter all strategic decisions through a CSR lens to ensure optimal outcomes for diverse stakeholders. Free Flow of Information: Yes, blame the bloggers, but through the Internet and other electronic mediums the flow of information has shifted back to the stakeholders, especially in the case of three important groups: Easily accessible and affordable communication technologies have permanently changed the game and only truly authentic and transparent companies will profit in the long term.
The Power of the Brand: Brands are today the focal point of corporate success and much of the health of the brand depends on public perception of the corporation. In other words, reputation is key and honest CSR is a way to protect that reputation and therefore the brand.
As reported by the aforementioned text, Malcolm Gladwell referred to the tipping point as the point of critical mass after which an idea spreads widely and becomes generally accepted and broadly implemented.
I argue that CSR has reached such a tipping point, pushed there by the five above factors. I further argue that CSR will become more mainstream and more part and parcel of everyday business strategy. These five forces have brought us here and will continue to promote and develop trends towards greater social responsibility on the part of firms.
But, are there others?
Factors that have not here been considered that have or will prompt this continued CSR evolution? Study interests include sustainability, social responsibility and the power of corporate and non-profit partnerships to bring about positive change.
