Nowadays companies due to the growing external influence are placing greater emphasis on social responsibility, they are not only paying attention to these activities, but also supporting these from their resources, which is often very different from the central economic beliefs.
Very often the expectations are vague, but powerful, nevertheless it is worth dealing with them. Although certain requirements appear in the law also, yet, corporate managers dedication remains an open question like their willingness to intervene. In other cases, companies are invited to prove their willingness to act and they do act, before any legal framework would appear to oblige the above mentioned action.
Social expectations contribute every now and then to redefine the role of the companies in the society.
The areas examined through the empirical research are the following:
The research is built on three main pillars.
The first section describes the respondent’s allegations about the company, describing the allegations to take part in social responsibility should choose those that best describe your company’s activities and should be evaluated using a 5-point Likert scale. It allows managers to prioritize the development of social responsibility.
In the second part I was interested in the value system of managers, here they must evaluate the allegations in the charge of a company, even if they do not apply to their own companies. Here I examined the impact of these attitudes and the behavior of the leaders on the companies’ activities.
In the third section I examined the demographic characteristics of the enterprise itself and the characteristics of the business leaders. The enterprise features provide a picture of the test management segment format, its main area of activity, product / service market and scope of employment. The leaders of the demographic characteristics of the research highlighted the gender distribution of the company’s management regarding the education of managers, home, work abroad and on their experiences and last but not least family roles. Based on hypotheses all of these can influence the company’s commitment towards social programs.
