For this assignment, select a specific business; it can be one you work for or, better yet, one you would like to work for in the future. Make sure the company you select meets the following criteria: It must have a written code of ethics and operate at the benevolent level of CSR (corporate social responsibility).
Search online for the companyâ€™s website, and review its code of ethics and its report on its corporate social responsibility programs; be sure to identify any of its sustainability practicesâ€”this may be a separate link.
Write a report on your chosen companyâ€™s code of ethics and CSR. In your report, address whether you believe that leaders of organizations have a duty to all stakeholders or just to stockholders. Present a business argument either for or against corporate social responsibility.
Be sure to include an introduction. Your report must be at least two pages in length, not counting the title or reference pages. Adhere to APA style when constructing this assignment, including in-text citations and references for all sources that are used. Please note that no abstract is needed.
As an international manager, your effectiveness can be greatly influenced by your understanding of cultural differences and their impact on staff. Hofstedeâ€™s Model of National Culture and Project GLOBE (pp. 583â€“585 in your textbook) details dimensions that help managers identify cultural differences within countries.
Write a one-page reflection paper about how this research has increased your understanding of different cultures and how you would use this understanding if managing staff who would be taking on expatriate assignments.
If outside sources are used, please adhere to APA style when creating citations and references for this assignment. APA formatting, however, is not necessary.
