BUS 250 Week 1 DQ 1&2,
The reason why people go on establishing business is so they can earn and have profits yet this is not the only thing that organizations should meet and target with their existence. There are other things that need to be considered as well like giving opportunities for the people within the community while at the same time not causing any risk to anybody in the area (Fitzgerald & Cormack). This means that businesses and corporations have responsibility towards the community where they are operating. The community and the businesses/corporations should have a working relationship and this includes being ethical and being part of the government in giving services to the community. Corporations are encouraged to be established in different communities’ because of their positive effect to the community with the expectation that they will be ethical or follow procedures that are friendly and harmless to the society. This is a corporate responsibility. In the United States, expectation towards different corporations and businesses are too high but this is unlikely to some countries where in corporations are just there to earn more profit and not to give help in return to the society. The government on the other hand is there to reinforce all expectation from corporations and make sure they are met especially the ethical concerns.
One sample of a company that shows accountability to the community it serves is Coal Cola. Coca-Cola is one of the main manufacturers of beverages not only in the United States but also in other countries and they are producing non-alcoholic products. The company has been selling billion units of products on a daily basis and they have a good pool of employees because the company makes sure they have a safe and healthy environment all the time. Aside from providing excellent employee care, Coca Cola is also known in providing assistance and help to communities where they operates giving donations and aids. Coca Cola also partners with non-government organizations in providing aid and assistance in communities where poverty strikes. The company also initiates programs that help in protecting the environment like having or building watersheds for the community and having a waste reduction production process in all of their production offices.
