When it comes to purchasing goods and services from certain companies, one of the first things I do is to research what types of social responsibility they wish to make. By far, most organizations nowadays practice social responsibility because first, they know that customers are keen aware and look to make business, purchases from companies who have some type of responsibility. Second, investors are also intrigue to invest in organizations that as well practice social responsibility; third, organizations know that by practicing social responsibility not only they promote themselves as a role model company, but the organization knows that doing good things for society pays off all around.
My current organization practices a lot of social responsibility, one of them is partnering with local food banks where we employ food drives at our workplace for employees to bring food items and meet an already set goal of amount of food we wish to donate to local food banks.
Another well established social responsibility my organization practices is that we stop any and all merchandise being brought into the United States where the company is suspected in practicing forced child labor, we do this in an effort to end child labor worldwide, but also to promote stability for those kids and create an environment where there are other options such schools, programs and most importantly just being kids.
I’ve always seen social responsibility as a virtuous circle for the companies and the environment, where the companies can have unlimited resources and guaranty of their long-term being. Even now I’m unable to understand how some companies do not apply it yet and they are more the kind of obstructionist or defensive that according to Jones and George (2020`), are the lower approaches of social responsibility that one company can take (p. 108). The benefits of being socially responsible are huge for the companies especially in terms of in one hand of more profit because of a good reputation and on the other hand through give back to the communities and provide better life or environmental conditions that eventually will benefit the companies too (Jones & George, 2020`, p. 110).
The company where I’m working on is taking a proactive approach of social responsibility, in the “Q2 Solutions” (2021) website it is clear the company has a strong responsibility with their employees and customer procuring they safety and well-being, also the company has a strong compromise with the environment to protect it, finally Q2 Solutions has also a big responsibility with the communities where clients and employees are. Also, Q2 Solutions supports charitable organizations like American Cancer Society, American Diabetes Association, Patient Advocate Foundation (PAF). From me it looks like fair salaries and good work-life time relation is missing but maybe I just seeing insulated cases.
