SA 8000:2008 Social Accountability

Social responsibility as an important part of any self-respecting company is known even to people who are far from management and economy. Socially responsible business understands that the main purpose of commercial activity is not to maximize profits, but to meet the needs and, consequently, improve people's lives. Surprisingly, even for such an area of activity there is an international standard SA 8000:2008, which regulates important ethical criteria in the course of business activities, including those related to improving the quality of working conditions and living standards of employees. Planning a productive management system in accordance with this standard allows optimizing corporate social responsibility costs, because SA 8000:2008 is based on best international practices and takes into account a number of important features of modern business.

In SA 8000:2008, social responsibility is understood as the ability of a company to assess the social impact of its activities, including the impact on the social environment. By implementing the standard, a company can significantly improve its reputation in society, increase its attractiveness to potential employees, increase motivation and productivity, stop staff turnover and improve the professional level of its employees.

The standard is aimed at optimizing the operation of enterprise management systems, taking into account the need to ensure the basic rights of employees, good working conditions and improve living standards in order to ensure the necessary level of profitability. Thus, the introduction of the requirements of the standard SA 8000:2008 at the enterprise significantly increases the efficiency of the entire organization through internal optimization of human capital. In countries such as Russia, obtaining an international standard certificate is often a prerequisite for cooperation with foreign companies from countries with strict labor laws, attracting foreign investment on favorable terms. Most Russian branches of multinational corporations have been certified according to SA 8000:2008.
