Сorporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainable business is one of the global trends. Abundance of corporate social responsibility ratings allows us to trace the relationship of this parameter with the financial and organizational results of the company. Current studies in this area are based on qualitative methods and small sample of firms that did not allow to give a clear answer about the presence or absence of the correlation. Correlation analysis of a large number of companies allowed us to reveal the relationship between the financial and organizational results of the company and its social responsibility level. One of the most significant results is the identification of a positive correlation between CSR level of revenue and long-term organization.
The evolution of scientific views of the problem of social mobility illustrates the complexity of analyzing mobility in a context of social change, but also shows the societal benefits of a meritocratic principle of social selection.
