IMPACT OF CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY ON ORGANIZATIONAL PERFORMANCE, A STUDY OF  ZENITH BANK NIGERIA PLC

CHAPTER ONE

1.1...

1.2     STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
Most organizations do not see reason in given back to the society a little of their profit. Hence, some organizations including banks see no reason why they should involve themselves in Corporate Social Responsibility. This has created a problem in the environment where they operate, because many banks see the programme of CSR as an onerous task.
Taking deposits, granting loans and providing complementary services which could and would yield profitable returns are the core business of banks in whatever kinds of countries, whatever kinds of culture, and whatever kinds of business environments. However, the trend in social responsibility is increasingly adopted by banks to respond to the need of the society within which it operates and to be responsible for meeting the expectations of their customers and other stakeholders in a socially responsible way. Thus, perceived drawbacks on this practice could be on the amount of capital that has to be devoted in solving society’s needs and meeting up with their expectations.
Again, this trend may be viewed as a drift from the main focus of banks as profit making institutions to charitable organizations. However, there is need to battle with this wrong notion and orientation to accepting CSR programs as a necessity and an unavoidable option to modern day Banks knowing that they are not operating in a vacuum but within the society and as such should reciprocate by meeting some of her expectations.
