As companies work in the international marketplace, a level of corporate responsibility is expected by the international business community and by the consumers. Companies must set standards for operations that satisfy the expectations in the home country as well as the host countries. Multinational companies can no longer set financial goals in terms of sales and profitability as the only measures of success; but they must also set standards for ethical and socially responsible behavior of their own enterprise as well as their stakeholders. This paper, using Nike as an example, describes challenges associated with Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) for large multinational organization. Furthermore, this paper discusses what Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is, and what is not, so managers can clearly and realistically state their goals and perspectives on what social responsibility means to their organizations and stakeholders.
