Abstract

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) refers to the practice of the corporates returning the favour to society in the form of programs that benefit the less privileged members of the community where the business is situated. Many of its program are social and environmental in nature whereas internally companies could also show its concern to issues of human rights and employees’ welfare as part of its CSR activities. In this way companies are encouraged to promote socially conscious business practices and provide funds for its continuance. In other words CSR is a company’s commitment to operating in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner whilst balancing the interest of diverse stakeholders. It requires companies to take a holistic look at their operations and identify all possible impacts as well as positive contributions. This article discusses the benefits of having a whistleblowing policy that would be able to foster an ethical environment for employees and build their confidence towards the management in terms of reputation and the goodwill of the organisation. In fact consumers will be confident with an organisation that is concerned with its employees’ welfare and willing to take the task of implementing such policy in good faith.
