Forum #2 Reply to Kevin Bourne BMAL 560- B05 Justin Tarver Liberty University Kevin, these are all great points on becoming a better corporate citizen. Lawrence and Weber (2017) mention that corporate citizenship is all about putting commitments into practice. (p. 49). I believe that you have done a great job of talking about corporate citizen requiring much responsibility and requires one to follow through with the work they have chosen to do. The five stages of corporate citizen that are talked about throughout the paper is vital and really helped me understand this concept even more. Peterson (2004) discussed how many times employees who want the business to succeed will truly have much better organizational commitment. This is very important because, without organizational commitment as a strong suit, corporate citizenship would struggle. Within the five stages that are mentioned, the fourth stage is one that really stuck out to me. Ferrell, Hult, & Maignam (1999) conversed about how companies that embody good corporate citizenship are companies that have good culture from the top to the bottom.
