Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), in my opinion, is most accurately illustrated in Archie Carroll's (1951) Four-Part Model of CSR which includes the following pyramid style of responsibilities: ? Philanthropic Responsibilities-according to Greek philosophers the term "philanthropy" means "love for your fellow human." The context of this meaning is used by organizations at their full discretion to "improve the quality of life of employees, local communities, and society in general. This aspect of CSR addresses a great variety of issues, including matters such as charitable donations, the building of recreation facilities for employees and their families, support for local schools, or sponsoring of art and sports events. " (Henningford et al, 2006) ? Ethical Responsibilities-This is where organizations are urged to do what is right, just, and fair according to all professional areas of conduct within the corporate framework. ? Legal Responsibilities- "The legal responsibility of corporations demands that businesses abide by the law and 'play by the rules of the game'. Laws are understood as the codification of society's moral views, and therefore abiding by these standards is a necessary prerequisite for any further reasoning about social responsibilities. In some sense, one might consider legal responsibility as a truism, which corporations have to fulfill just to keep their license to operate. However, one only needs to open the business pages nowadays to see that the ongoing coverage of corporate scams, scandals and lawsuits reveals that abiding by the law, not bending the rules and not cutting corners, can hardly be taken for granted in today's business world." (Henningfold, et al, 2006). ? Economic Responsibilities- Organizations have responsibilities with their shareholders to ensure that shareholders have an adequate return on their investment (ROI). Employees expect to be fairly compensated for services rendered or jobs performed within the confines of a safe and adequate working environment. Consumers demand high-quality product for a good yet reasonable price. This segment of CSR is a continuous cycle within supply and demand.
