Abstract

Corporate Social Responsibility has transformed a lot from the conventional philanthropic doings by big corporate houses and came a long way from just fulfilling the responsibility restricted to paltry welfare of its immediate employees and their families. Indian businesses have a long tradition of engaging in philanthropic and community programmes and entrepreneurs today are effectively using these principles of social-business. They have imbibed the advantage of ethical behaviour of their company towards society. As a result, businesses now enjoy benefits like lower tax rates, reduced regulatory interventions, faster approvals, highly motivated workforce, customer loyalty, risk mitigation, enhanced brand image, value-based supplier network and favourable public opinion about company. This paper analyses these business benefits and more in the context of cases from Indian businesses.

Keywords: CSR, Social Responsibility, Ethical Business Practices, Corporate Philantrophy, Companies & Society
