CLA 2 Comprehensive Learning Assessment 2 – CLO 5, CLO 6, CLO 7
Corporate social responsibility (CSR, also called corporate conscience, corporate citizenship, or responsible business) is a form of corporate self-regulation integrated into a business model.
CSR policy functions as a self-regulatory mechanism whereby a business monitors and ensures its active compliance with the spirit of the law, ethical standards, and national or international norms. With some models, a firm’s implementation of CSR goes beyond compliance and engages in “actions that appear to further some social good, beyond the interests of the firm and that which is required by law.” The aim is to increase long-term profits and shareholder trust through positive public relations and high ethical standards to reduce business and legal risk by taking responsibility for corporate actions. CSR strategies encourage the company to make a positive impact on the environment and stakeholders including consumers, employees, investors, communities, and others.
Every year, Reputation Institute, a private global consulting firm based in New York, invites about 47,000 consumers, across fifteen markets, to participate in a study that ranks the world’s one hundred most reputable companies—all multinational businesses with a global presence. One of their recent studies found that 42 percent of how people feel about a company is based on their perceptions of the firm’s corporate social responsibility (CSR).
The student’s Task:
1. Select a company (domestic or international) that will be the basis for your research.
2. Research the company’s record in the area of CSR. Be sure to look at both their domestic and as well as international reputation.
3. A good place to begin your research is the LibGuide at Rutgers University: http://libguides.rutgers.edu/csr
4. Complete a written assignment that contains the following information:
a) A summary of the business you selected.
b) According to your research, how does the company rank with regard to CSR?
Be sure to provide a source for this ranking.
c) Describe specific examples of corporate actions that resulted in this company’s ranking.
d) Does a company’s approach to CSR influence your purchasing decisions? Why or why not?
DO NOT write your paper as a series of answers to these questions. This assignment should follow the written assignment guidelines for the course. Be sure to include APA formatted in-text citations of peer-reviewed or other sources you used for your research.
CLA 2 measures the student’s competency and mastery of the course concepts, particularly the application of those concepts.
Your CLA2 submission (cumulative report) should be 8 to 10 pages in length. The CLA assignments encompass the learning objectives for this course and are designed to increase your comprehension and augment your ability to apply concepts learned in your professional careers. Subsequently, in addition to your report, please prepare a professional PowerPoint presentation summarizing your findings for CLA1 and CLA2. The presentation will consist of your company’s CSR initiative, sustainability and action plan, and recommendations for leadership in a concise 18 slide presentation. You should use content from your report at material for your PowerPoint presentation.
*Please refer to the Grading Criteria for Comprehensive Learning Assessments (CLAs) on page 9-10 of the syllabus for specific guidelines and expectations.
CLA2 Comprehensive Learning Assessment (CLA 2) Presentation
In addition to your CLA2 report, please prepare a professional PowerPoint presentation summarizing your findings for CLA2. The presentation will consist of your major findings, analysis, and recommendations in a concise presentation of 18 slides (minimum). You should use content from your CLA2 report as material for your PowerPoint presentation. In addition, you should include learning outcomes from all your major assignments. This would include PA1, CLA1, PA2, and of course, CLA2 (unless otherwise specified by your Professor). An agenda, executive summary, and references slides should also be included. Please keep in mind that the university is moving towards a more digital footprint for our students. This means that your final CLA2 presentation may be recorded, so that you may include it in your “e-portfolio” (graduating students should have all of their CLA2 presentations on a flash-drive, in addition to student biography, resume, interests, etc.) Students will present their PowerPoint during the last week of class in either the On-Campus Class Session or the online Virtual Class Session, as determined by the professor. Presentations should not exceed 18 minutes.
*Please refer to the Grading Criteria for CLA2 Presentations on page 11-12 of the syllabus for specific guidelines and expectations.
