Discussion Board-Forum Two Larry D. White How does a firm become a better corporate citizen? Businesses are created to produce a profit for its stakeholders and provide a service for its consumers, the better they accommodate the needs increases their reputation and earning potential. In order for businesses to accomplish those needs they have to be good corporate citizens this is the social responsibility to meet the legal, moral and ethical responsibilities while producing high standards, profits and maintaining integrity (Lawrence & Weber, 2014). If a company wants to be good corporate citizens, they have to develop this process and integrate it into their practices this is done in stages after accessing the needs of its customers and investors. There are five stages of Corporate citizenship elementary, engaged, innovative, integrated and transforming. The indoctrination of corporate citizenship starts with the compliant stage doing the minimum required by law then gradually developing policies integrating employees. The next step in the process involves engaging senior management increasing the standards to achieve corporate citizenship, after leadership is involved the policies created are funded and transparency to the community is available to the community. The final step to a company become good corporate citizen is transformation; this is where a company understands that corporate citizenship increases sales, profits and new market ventures, involvement with all parties’ stakeholders, consumers becomes a part of the companies standard operating procedures. The bottom line is that corporate citizen is a good business practice when consumer know what a companies is doing and how they operate its strengthens and reputation of the company

because it alleviates the notion that they have something to hide. Some of the most successful companies practice corporate citizenship; Google, Coca-Cola, and Ford have all integrated environmental mythologies that have appealed to a broader audience and displayed corporate citizenship. Good business practices do not ensure corporate citizenship but public private partnership, collaborating with stakeholders and increased relations will (Choi & Wang, 2009). Corporate citizenship is in close relations to servant leadership because it betters the organization and enhances the lives of those involves. “And they said to him, “If you will be a servant to this people today and serve them, and speak good words to them when you answer them, then they will be your servants forever.” (1 Kings 12:7, ESV). The thing to realize with corporate citizenship is that it is not perfect and consumers and stakeholders don’t want perfection they want efficiency and commitment; they know the company is dedicated to ensuring their well-being this is a primary example of corporate citizenship. It’s imperative that a business have a relationship with its stakeholders because no business can survive without one they are the financier and the main customer that keeps the company operational (Waddock, 2001). Communication is key when answering how company can become better corporate citizens, transparency and strong relationships are the qualities that garner trust, loyalty and a since of ownership for all parties involved. Corporate citizenship and corporate responsibility are relatively similar as good business practices and necessary steps to ensure a company’s overall success. Corporate citizenship is a company listening to the needs of the people they service to increase the relations with the community, business and wellbeing of the population they effect. Without corporate citizenship companies will not look out for the interest of the people, but operate in a selfish manner for personal gain creating mistrust and potential loss of profit.
