Qualitative Study on Corporate Social Responsibility Student’s Name Institutional Affiliation Qualitative Study on Corporate Social Responsibility Corporations have the responsibility to meet the interests of the stakeholders primarily. It is vital that business operations are geared towards maximizing production and profits in line with the goals of the business owners (Osloviti 2015). However it has been established that the corporate citizens have a responsibility towards their surrounding environment. Corporate social responsibility is a strategy beyond making profits that put into consideration the impact that business entities have on people and also the planet at large. It implies that there is a need for stakeholders to be more both socially and environmentally as they conduct their business. Problem Statement The society demands that corporations should be socially and environmentally responsible but not just concerned about making profits. The corporate social responsibility activities require financing by the corporations from their earnings data and making informed conclusions from the study. The study challenges me to try a mixed method approach one day as it has great results despite the complexities of the process. References Awan A. G. & Saeed S. (2015).
