Introduction

Introduction In this task I am going to explain the ethical concerns facing the communities in which the business operates. I will also suggest measures that could be taken to improve corporate responsibility. Ethical issues and ways of improvement Businesses today have to face ethical and social issues in order to become, and be seen as a socially and ethically responsible business. Social presence, environmental responsibilities, working in the community and employee volunteering are just some of the areas where organisations can make progress towards becoming a responsible business. In order to satisfy the community and be ethical more than 60 per cent companies have ethical policies. This is often a direct result of pressure from the investment community, concerned about the impact of weak ethical credentials on company value. In a service-led economy, employees are a most important asset. Responsible business has become a central issue for candidates considering a career move, so it is vital that organisations move beyond lip service and implement genuine responsible business programmes to help to recruit and retain the best talent. ...read more.

They must ensure that there are enough of these different spaces so that the overflow of the customers does not have to use normal spaces. Tesco should also encourage other modes of transport. Tesco must make sure they operate ethically in all regions because if one region has faced any problems or unethical trading, the whole business will be under a risk. In every country where Tesco operate, they work with local communities to provide jobs and services and support local causes. In order to make a major contribution to the community Tesco employ hundreds of thousands of people depending on their success. But this alone is not enough; I believe Tesco stores should be special places in communities. They should be places where people can rely on them, always feel safe and are treated with respect. Acting responsibly for communities should be the core Tesco value as this is the fundamental to any businesses success. ...read more.

Conclusion

Many others have stretched beyond the statutory obligations to comply with legislation and taken additional steps to improve the quality of life for their employees and their families as well as for the local community and the society at large. Tesco can contribute immensely towards making businesses socially responsible by first becoming aware of issues surrounding CSR. They must not remain apathetic to this global issue that affects each one of us directly or indirectly. Conclusion A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Improving CSR is a gigantic task but still it is the need of the hour. By helping the local community and operating ethically Tesco can play an essential role in improving in the area of CSR. In this task I have explained the ethical concerns facing the communities in which Tesco operates. I have also suggested measures that could be taken to improve corporate responsibility. ?? ?? ?? ??
