Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become an important part of business for many of today’s companies. Many times, however, its CSR efforts are overshadowed by publicized ethical dilemmas. Wal-Mart is a great example of this. Here is a link to the webpage devoted to their CSR efforts: https://corporate.walmart.com/global-responsibility. They also have a page devoted to “Ethics & Compliance”: https://corporate.walmart.com/our-story/global-ethics-compliance. The other side of the Wal-Mart coin, however, contains a slew of ethical issues including claims about labor law, discrimination, etc.
For this week’s discussion, visit and evaluate both Wal-Mart webpages provided and summarize their efforts for CSR and ethics. Next, using your Information Literacy skills, locate at least one reputable article about Wal-Mart’s ethical troubles that has been published within the last 10 years. Share a link to the article by creating a proper APA citation, summarize the article and describe the ethical issue. Finally, answer these questions:
After reading about Wal-Mart’s CSR and ethical efforts versus their ethical issues, does it affect your interest in patronizing the company? Explain why or why not.
Do you feel the CSR/ethics strategies they employ benefit the community, or do you feel it is more of a ploy to make themselves look better? Explain and support your conclusion.
