Microsoft Microsoft is another major company that takes great effort in giving back. The company was even named the best at Corporate Social Responsibility by the Reputation Institute. One way Microsoft is helping out is through its annual Employee Giving Campaign, where employees attend fundraising events for nonprofit organizations. The campaign has been held every year since 1983 and has raised more than $1 billion in contributions to more than 31,000 organizations.

TOMS Shoes TOMS Shoes might not be as well-known as some of the other companies on this list , but its charity work is still impressive. The entire company was founded on the idea of giving back. For every pair of shoes sold, another pair is donated to a child in need. More than 10 million pairs of shoes have been donated, and that charitable effort has now extended to vision care for kids. For these companies and many others, business isn’t all about the bottom line. They make strides to be a caring part of the community and help out those who live in less fortunate circumstances. They’re companies that know how important Corporate Social Responsibility can be to others. Starbucks Starbucks has been around for more than four decades, and from the very beginning it has worked hard to operate in an ethical manner. Starbucks ranked as Fortune Magazine’s fifth most socially responsible company in 2012. There are a number of good reasons for the high ranking. The company looks for better ways to develop sustainable production of its coffee. It has set in place some guidelines it calls C.A.F.E Practices, ensuring environmental leadership, economic accountability, and product quality. Starbucks also supports Ethos Water, which provides clean water to more than a billion people. On its website, Starbucks professes to fulfill its environmental mission statement as well by understanding environmental issues and sharing information with its partners; developing innovative and flexible solutions to bring about change; striving to buy, sell and use environmentally friendly products. By all accounts Starbucks certainly is an ethical company that meets its stated social responsibilities. Starbucks believes that conducting business ethically and striving to do the right thing are vital to the success of the company. Business Ethics and Compliance is a program that supports Our Starbucks Mission and helps protect our culture and our reputation by providing resources that help partners make ethical decisions at work.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
