CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND ITS EFFECT ON ORGANIZATIONAL PERFORMANCE
 CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION
  1.1 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
 Corporate engagement with society was termed corporate Social responsibility (CRS) has become a commonly used term In contemporary society and refers to one process by which An organization expresses its corporate culture and society consciousness. (Rupp, Deborah E, Ganapathi, Iyoti (2006) and Calderon, Mario (2011)  CSR has been receiving lots of attention from various backgrounds of researchers worldwide. (Isamail 2011).  Clark (1916) emphasized the importance of transparency bin business dealings, he said if men are responsible for the known results of their actions, business responsibility must  include the  known results of business dealings weather these have been recognized by law or not. (CSR  QUEST, 2009).
  In Nigeria the origin of the concept can be traced to concerns for the fundamental rights of  Human  beings (Onwuchekwa 1999:59). This era was filled with legislation designed to regulate business and industry in Nigeria and it was clear that business would have to accommodate public interest if free enterprise was to survive( Onwuchekwa 1999:59).
Over the years, one issue that has frequently been addressed is, for what and whom companies are  responsible to when pursing business? This is because many believe that the only  responsibility of a business is to ensure maximum profit to its shareholders who in turn will  determine how to use resources (Andriof and McIntosh, 2001:12). This is line with Friedman’s  statement that “the business of business is2business”. Friedman stated that “companies should  not take on any additional responsibilities since that will diminish the profit making focus and
maybe most importantly, companies lack both the democratic and legal base to pursue such societal activities (Andriof and McIntosh, 2001:15). Others argue that Corporate Social  Responsibility (CSR) is a “fashionable nonsense” (Overall, 2002:2). It is not good for companies  to start weighing the merits of competing social, economic and environmental goals that is the  job for elected governments. Instead, managers should serve the people, who pay their salaries,  (Overall, 2002:3). A radically different view, is that of those who argue that, a company is
responsible for all its stakeholders and  should therefore take greater responsibility for the society  at large and seek to solve social and environmental problems in its market (Deresky, 2005:12) .
