Evaluate the level of ethical behavior and corporate social responsibility of the organization you work for or are otherwise involved with. Research and document the organization’s internal and external communication, such as mission statements, credos, et cetera, in regard to their values and ethics. If possible, interview a human resources representative from your chosen organization to further expand your research. Use this information and the Triple Bottom Line questions on page 456, “People, Planet, and Profit: Sustainability and the Triple Bottom Line,” of your text, to help evaluate and report on the organization’s performance in regard to:
- High ethical standards.
- Dedication to community service.
- Embracing diversity.
- Being an employer of choice.
- Having compassion for the disadvantaged.
- Commitment to charitable giving and concern for the environment.
How do you rate your organization overall in terms of ethical behavior and social responsibility? What improvements do you recommend and why?
