IIM’s Corporate Social Responsibility Thoughts

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a term used to pronounce when businesses look beyond their initial duty to their staff and customers (or students in the case of a college), and acknowledge that their actions have a wider impact. Undertaking a programs of CSR activities encourages businesses to operate in more sustainable, ethical and charitable ways.

Although Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a form of soft law. It is not required by U.S. statute or regulations, i.e., “hard law,” but is nonetheless seen as obligatory by most corporations because of consumer expectations and internal norms. (Forbes, 11 Oct, 2019)

We are expecting that our learners, staff and board of governors take social responsibilities very seriously and can take this as an essential part of our business. As a virtual institution, we have also a role to play in the social and economic welfare of the society and an ethical responsibility to our planet.

As part of the institute experience, learners are encouraged to contemplate their own social responsibility through the different programs which covers society values and links to the institute’s Mission and Values. We as IIMEducian encourage our learners to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, and make a positive contribution and economic well-being of the society.

Corporate social responsibility also supports many of the activities supported by our internal team, and the institute suggests a number of charities in forthcoming years to support, both in fundraising and volunteering.

The institute is decided to work positively to expand, develop and evaluate our sustainability programs to make sure that it contributes to the efficiency of the institute.  IIM thoughts in providing educational programs to our internal staff as well as learners about sustainable issues to help inspire a behavioral change. IIM inspire all staff and learners to recycle waste and we will have in future regular environmental group meetings to look at sustainability.
