Module 4 SLP DUTY ETHICS

CSR

By now, you should be very familiar with the Mattel case. In the Module 4 SLP, we will evaluate the Mattel case study in the context of Corporate Social Responsibility. Specifically, socially responsible organizations behave in certain ethical ways. Socially responsible organizations tend to go above and beyond the rules, mores, and expectations that have been established (and that are expected to be adhered to) by the general public, company employees, end customers, buyers and suppliers, and the government, for example. We will investigate the ways in which Mattel’s behaviors and actions contravened the tenets of “socially responsible” behavior.

Required Reading

Read the following excerpt related to CSR. As you read, consider the benefits realized by socially responsible organizations, and how the leadership at Mattel operated counter to CSR tenets:

Be sure to cite specific examples.

What have been the long-term consequences of Mattel’s actions, and how did the company’s implosion change our view of what it means for a company to be “socially responsible”?
