3.2 Analysis of the data
Responsibility means accountability, therefore social responsibility means, or may be defined as an obligation to fulfill certain positive duties in one’s environment or society.
Social responsibility of a business therefore suggests the obligation a firm must undertake to discharge on its area of operation or to individuals working for such firm or organization
From the above expostulations, it is dent that the social responsibility of a firm consists of both internal and external commitments.
The essence of scrutinizing the degree to which a firm fulfils it’s obligation to the society and it’s employees is a direct measure of the integrity of that firm, as well as the determination of it’s place in this area of modern business conventionalities.
Also very important to note is the fact that a business in discharging it’s social responsibilities satisfactorily simultaneously attracts to itself both prestige and progress as the people are more wont to patronize its product and acclaim it’s modesty.
Moreover, just like shake spare wrote “The abuse of greatness is when it disjoint remorse from power”….it will be a gross ant humanity for a firm to enjoy all it benefit alone, without remembering the goose that lays the golden eggs. Common sense therefore demands that production other manufacturing firms should for some of their activities that releases adverse social effects Viz: Environmental pollution, decay, health hazards, and displacement of human settlement etc. discharge certain compensative duties.
Some developed countries, especially the industrialist countries of the western 6 o’clock, out of altruism and not compensation, fulfill certain gratis to the poor under developed countries that are it’s raw materials procuring sources. This shows that apart from the commitment by reason to ameohiorate adverse effects initiated or caused by it’s activities on the people and place of it’s operation, that a business can also carryout certain services to the society, on a pure Samaritan an or humanitarian basis.
A business that is conscious of it’s social responsibilities is a sure tool for securing economic enlistment and growth. It is therefore very laudable of every business to always accommodate its social responsibilities when drafty its annual but gets- and also perform other social function that will contribute positively to its area of activity.
