    Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become a common practice all over the world, however, social responsibility in the field of sport is still a new concept and received a little attention. This study aims to reveal the current state of social responsibility practices among the football clubs of the professional football league in Jordan. A descriptive survey method was used and a questionnaire was designed to collect the required data on three aspects (administrative, financial and CSR programs). The study found that there is a medium degree of availability of the administrative and financial aspects that activate the implementation of the CSR concept. Moreover, the study also revealed a medium degree of availability of the CSR programs offered by the selected clubs. Furthermore, the study proved that the football clubs in Jordan are aware of their social responsibility and recognize their role in the betterment of the society. JEL Classification: C21, D24, Q12

  • Is it worth being socially responsible?

    Several definitions for corporate social responsibility (CSR) exist and these vary greatly as to the activities it should cover and their motivators. Among the benefits of CSR are positive marketing/brand building, brand insurance and employee loyalty. Numerous arguments against CSR prevail, e.g. social responsibility is not a problem that belongs in the sphere of activities a corporation should be addressing or even that CSR distracts businesses from addressing the primary need to concentrate on sales. Thus, the strong economic question: is CSR worth it? In 2014, we carried out a representative survey in Hungary, in which the effects of responsible business practices on consumer purchase behaviour were studied. With our research results, we could show that there is a considerable gap between the apparent interest of consumers in CSR and the limited role of CSR in purchase behaviour. JEL classification:M104

    Corporate governance is concerned with holding the balance between economic and social goals and between individual and communal goals. The corporate governance framework is there to encourage the efficient use of resources and equally to require accountability for the stewardship of those resources. This article outlines the relationship between corporate governance and corporate social responsibility (CSR). The issue of climate change is one of the most challenging. This problem can be solved by using alternative resources and creating innovative products. Also creating business strategies for sustainability and promoting positive social and envi-ronmental impacts are the vital for human beings and environment around the world. It covers the assumptions that underlie theories of corporate governance. All these initiatives can improve situa-tion regarding environmental issues and public trust can be improved as well.
  • Application of corporate social responsibility approaches in human resources management: a qualitative study in the Moroccan context

    Abdelhay BENABDELHADI; Safaa MAKATI (University mohammed V, 2017-11-01)
    Corporate Social Responsibility, which originated in Bowen's work (1953), is a multidimensional concept known for the plurality of definitions and approaches to which it refers. Generally defined as: “the voluntary integration by companies of social and environmental concerns into their business activities and their relations with stakeholders”. (European Commission, 2012). The 'social' term on the definition refers to all the internal stakeholders of the company, namely employees. This leads us to consider the association of CSR practices with the human resources management policy. The aim of this qualitative research is to know how industrial companies take ownership of CSR approaches based essentially on ISO 26000 standards. And to know what are the opportunities and threats induced by the deployment of these approaches especially on the function of human resources. To this end, a qualitative study was carried out among senior executives, HR managers and employees of two Moroccan companies that are leaders in the operationalization of CSR approaches in the industrial sectors.
