Corporate Responsibility: Awards At City, State, and National Levels

There may have been a time when a national CSR awards program could highlight most of the corporate good performed by companies, organizations, people, and government agencies, but that time is thankfully long past. Two recent announcements highlight the way CSR has permeated into our consciousness at every level.

The City & State New York CSR Awards will be presented next week to “outstanding New Yorkers, who, on behalf of their company or institution, have successfully promoted one or more of our 10 core principles of corporate social responsibility.” Twenty recipients represent an impressive spectrum of worthwhile efforts, including college staffers for overall excellence in engaging underserved students, accountants with longstanding commitments to increasing diversity in the accounting profession, and healthcare administrators who champion LGBT inclusion in public health.

These CSNY awards are remarkable for a few very encouraging reasons. First, they underscore and celebrate CSR efforts within a specific locality. CSR isn’t just something that’s done way over there; it’s prevalent right here, right in this city and right in this state. Second, the awards recognize the people, individual names with specific jobs, for their work. The C stands for “corporate,” an important concept, but we often forget that the driving force behind important, world-changing initiatives are people who care.

Scanning the range of CSNY award winners is an exercise in feeling good about our fellow citizens. Just reading the names, titles, and descriptions of each award winner feels almost like contributing in a tiny way, and it reminds us that the differences made by them can be made by any of us: they’re just regular people like us, doing outstanding work we could contribute to.

The UK’s Greater Good Awards were, until this year, called the CSR awards. The awards’ founder felt “corporate social responsibility” was becoming narrow and restrictive, wanting the awards to “embrace more businesses, more people, and more projects.” While the scope may have shifted, the spirit remains (we’ve discussed these UK awards in past articles), and the Greater Good Awards published its shortlist of finalists for next month’s ceremony.

As with the New York awards, reading the list of categories and finalists for the Greater Good Awards makes the reader feel good about the work these organizations are performing. Companies are nominated for marketing campaigns, sustainability initiatives, branding strategies, community service projects, community partnerships, education projects, and employee engagement, among others.

Similar awards programs exist elsewhere around the planet, at municipal levels, state levels, and national levels. It can lead one almost to feel that corporate social responsibility has become the norm, rather than the news, and while we’d never want to be bored with these efforts, it’s refreshing and encouraging to see that the concept has taken hold, and is no longer some radical, underground concept. Good news for us all.
