Katarzyna Olejniczak , Justyna Majchrzak-Lepczyk


In the era of the increased competition, and also progressing globalization, the effective and particularly responsible activities of enterprises become the condition which is necessary for further development. Unfortunately, the success of many organizations (both public and commercial ones) is burdened with scandals. The response to the increasing social awareness has become the increasingly popular concept of corporate social responsibility. This follows from the fact that today the company cannot and should not only build economic value of long-term strategy to raise profits, but also take into account social and environmental aspects of the management strategy. Corporate social responsibility is the concept according to which enterprises voluntarily impose on themselves the duty of responsibility for local community and environment they operate in. In the broad sense of social responsibility means taking such actions, which bring economic benefits while engaging organizations in a balanced development, working with employees, the public in order to improve their lives. Therefore, one can assume that social responsibility is a concept according to which the enterprises, in their business activities, should take into consideration social problems and environmental protection and act on the principle of voluntariness with all the interested parties. Due to this fact, the concept of social responsibility should become an integral part of any business activities and their everyday practice. Particularly important is social responsibility of the state authorities, who, while ignoring this trend – fail in their statutory obligations towards the society and the environment. The present paper discusses social responsibility on the example of public entities.
