Do Good Reap Good: Implications of CSR for Organizational Performance

 

Corporate social responsibility is a significant factor that has the power to either make or break the organizations. We cannot negate its importance in the light of increasing focus on addressing environmental concerns and giving back to the society. The goal of this paper is to determine the influence of corporate social responsibility on organizational performance in the business world. We have reviewed corporate social responsibility by looking at its dimensions and conceptual background, as well as its strategic types.

It’s What’s Inside: Impact of Culture on Strategy Making

 

The purpose of this paper is to reflect how crucial cultures’ impact on corporate performance, organizational growth and success is. The paper portrays the implications of cultural orientation for strategy formulation. The rationalization of our topic belongs to different functional areas of knowledge; therefore our study is incorporating a multiplicity of cultural impacts. Culture being permeable can critically affect change initiatives either by being supportive to the strategy implementation or by hindering strategy execution. The power of culture is undeniable while assessing the evolution of an organization around strategy.
