Download Mythos CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility). Unternehmen by Katharina Nowakowski PDF

By Katharina Nowakowski

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich BWL - Unternehmensethik, Wirtschaftsethik, observe: 1,8, Hochschule Bremen, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die vorliegende Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit unternehmerischer Verantwortung und deren Umsetzung innerhalb der Unternehmen. Die heutige Zeit verlangt neue Rahmenbedingungen und Zielsetzungen für das Wirtschaften. Zu stark sind Unternehmen auf eine kurzfristige Gewinnmaximierung ausgerichtet, mit der Folge, dass sie dabei gesellschaftliche und ökologische Ziele missachten.
Um gesellschaftliche Verantwortung, das Konzept einer weltweiten Nachhaltigkeit und das Handeln der privatwirtschaftlich organisierten Unternehmen im stärkeren Maße zu fördern und zu fordern, bestehen eine Vielzahl etablierter CSR-Berichterstattungsinstrumente. Der Unterschied zu konventionellen Berichterstattungsinstrumenten ist, dass diese keine monetäre Darstellung der Unternehmensperformance liefern, sondern über das jeweiligen Engagement der Unternehmen im sozialen und ökologischen Bereich informieren. Dabei verfolgen sie die übergeordnete Zielsetzung, Transparenz im Bereich Verantwortungsübernahme für die interessierten Anspruchsgruppen zu schaffen.
Die im Rahmen der Arbeit durchgeführte examine der verschiedenen CSR-Berichterstattungsinstrumente zeigte, dass diese das tatsächliche Engagement und den tatsächlichen Nutzen des unternehmerischen Engagements oft nicht adäquat aufzeigen. Alternativ zu den CSR Instrumenten stellt die Gemeinwohl-Bilanz eine Möglichkeit dar, Veränderungen innerhalb der Unternehmen hin zu mehr gesellschaftlich verantwortlichem Handeln und mehr Nachhaltigkeit anzustoßen. So weist die Gemeinwohl-Bilanz gegenüber gängigen CSR-Berichterstattungsformen großes power auf, Unternehmen adäquat auf die heutigen und zukünftigen Herausforderungen vorzubereiten.
Mittels der empirischen Untersuchung konnten Schwierigkeiten bei der Umsetzung der Gemeinwohl-Bilanz in den untersuchten Unternehmen festgestellt werden, die auf die noch in den Anfängen stehende Entwicklung des Konzepts zurück zu führen sind. .Damit der finanzielle und personelle Aufwand innerhalb der Unternehmen zukünftig geringer ausfällt, wurde als ein Ergebnis der vorliegenden Arbeit ein Leitfaden für Unternehmen erstellt, der die einzelnen Arbeitsinhalten für die Erstellung, Implementierung und Umsetzung der Gemeinwohl-Bilanz enthält.

Download Die Didaktik der ökonomischen Bildung: Unter besonderer by Anja Schlepütz PDF

By Anja Schlepütz

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich BWL - Didaktik, Wirtschaftspädagogik, word: 1,0, Universität zu Köln (Humanwissenschaftliche Fakultät), Veranstaltung: Umsetzungen ökonomischer Problemstellungen in Bildungsprozessen , eight Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Seit den 1990er Jahren gibt es vermehrt bildungspolitische Bestrebungen, ökonomische Bildung in allen allgemein bildenden Schulen zu verankern und zu stärken. Dies wird mit einer Reihe von Argumenten begründet, z.B. die soziale Marktwirtschaft ist auf das Verstehen, Verständnis und den Gestaltungswillen von Wirtschaftsbürgern angewiesen, die Wettbewerbsfähigkeit der deutschen Wirtschaft verlangt im Zeitalter der Globalisierung ein fundiertes ökonomisches Wissen aller Bürger and so on. Zwischen politischem und ökonomischem Lernen besteht eine enge Verbindung, da sich beides an denselben Bildungszielen und –prinzipien orientiert. Hedtke beschreibt in seinem Artikel einige grundlegende Gemeinsamkeiten der politischen und ökonomischen Bildung in Bezug auf die Ziele, die Prinzipien und die Methoden. Zu den allgemeinen Zielen des politischen und ökonomischen Lernens zählt er vor allem Mündigkeit, Urteilsfähigkeit, Handlungsfähigkeit und Partizipation. Als gemeinsame Prinzipien nennt er, mit unterschiedlicher Gewichtung, die Teilnehmer-, Situations-, challenge- und Wissenschaftsorientierung, Perspektivenwechsel, Exemplarizität und auch Kontroversität. Weiterhin stellt Hedtke fest, dass sich ökonomisches Lernen weder theoretisch noch praktisch von politischem Lernen in Bezug auf die Methoden unterscheidet, da beide weitestgehend auf dieselben fachdidaktischen Lehr-Lern-Methoden und sozialwissenschaftliche Methoden zurückgreifen. Als gemeinsames Repertoire bei den Lehr-Lern-Methoden nennt er z.B. Fallstudie, Planspiel, Pro-Contra-Diskussion, Rollenspiel oder Szenario. Bei den sozialwissenschaftlichen Methoden werden z.B. Befragung, Simulationsmodell oder Statistikanalyse gemeinsam angewendet.
Trotz dieser Gemeinsamkeiten gibt es einige Charakteristika für ökonomisches Lernen, die Hedtke in disziplinäre, sektorale, institutionale und paradigmatische Spezifika einteilt. Eine disziplinäre Unterscheidung besteht im Hinblick auf die Bezugswissenschaft, in Fall des ökonomischen Lernens ist dies die Wirtschaftswissenschaft, wobei der Schwerpunkt hier im schulischen Kontext eher auf der Volkswirtschaftslehre als auf der Betriebswirtschaftslehre liegt. Dementsprechend werden auch vor allem volkswirtschaftlichen Leitkategorien wie z.B. Knappheit, Rationalität, difficulty, Risiko und Kreislauf in das Zentrum des ökonomischen Lernens gestellt...
