CSR for Small Companies: How Small is Small?
Bernhard Keim, Business Consultant, Germany, Premium Member
IMHO also in small firms some kind of responsibility is welcomed. But it's different. Small companies (up to 100 employees) are normally driven by an owner who knows everyone and is known by everybody. The relationship between him and his employees is far more familiar, less formal and more natural. People can expect to be treated fairly.
The CSR of big companies works differently. It's formalised, bureaucratic and hardly affordable for small companies.
 

 
Corporate Responsibility: Different for Large and Small Firms
Graham Williams, Management Consultant, South Africa, Premium Member
Clearly, the larger the organisation, the larger it's geographic reach and ability to upscale and size of available spend and impact are likely to be (all other things being equal).
Irrespective of size, all companies and organisations (including NGOs, Parastatals, SOEs, Public and Private sectors) have an equal responsibility to act as good citizens and care for the economy, society and environment. This means developing the right values, purposes, mindsets; employing right tools such as integrated thinking relative to all capitals.
A primary driver of this standpoint is the nature and magnitude of the problems we are facing together.
