Can corporations be trusted to do the right thing when it comes to reducing or eliminating existing social problems and/or inequality in the workplace? Is good corporate citizenship a possibility in the global economy today?
In my opinion, corporations definitely have the potential to tackle sociological problems in the workplace but the reality of it being such (to 100%) is minimal to nonexistent. The truth is that corporations have a lot to handle in terms of getting their products out to the market and ensuring proper customer service for all their clients. Does it this mean that resolving issues from within the workforce is totally ignored? Not necessarily; some companies definitely strive to have a somewhat adequately represented workplace of males/females and whites/non-whites, it just needs to be much more widespread.
Good corporate sponsorship is a must in the global economy of today because there is always heavy competition (from other corporations) in this setting and by promoting good corporate sponsorship, customers would be more willing to put in stakes for the company. That is, just as long as their willingness to create high standards of living/quality of life in the towns they operate in succeeds (which of course determines the reputation of the corporation). With that said, good corporate sponsorship is most certainly possible.
