Good afternoon everyone,

Yes, a person employed in the corporate world can contribute to the social sector by doing various activities such as a Tree plantation drive at weekends (Saturday), also By donating blood during blood donation drives and in some cases, they can teach children living in slums where the students parent can't afford to send their childrens to school also there are various way they can contribute to the social sector such as paying taxes, use of public transport. It depends on person's value and beliefs.

Dear friends,

Social sector is one of the greatest Platform to serve society, where we find a chance to help poor peoples who really needy, poor people are unable to live a in society like middle class people. They dedicate their life to improve their family. They work all day then they got few money to take food for their family. This is the life cycle of poorer families. They don't thik about their children to educate them. So if we have few time then don't waste to this here and there go in remote areas and ask their problems and help them. This is the real humanism.

Yes, one can contribute if he wants to contribute.

We can see so many examples around us like Bill gates, Ratan tata, Amitabh bachchan, Sachin, Aamir and many more. All of the above mentioned has parallelly does their prof and social work.

Not only by money, one can contribute towards the social sector by keeping environment neat and clean, not exploiting resources, not polluting, spreading harmony and brotherhood etc.

Not only the corporate world related employee but any can contribute towards social sector if he is concise about it.

Yes. Any person who is employed and earning can contribute to the society. Especially people who are working in the corporate sector are well known for the CSR activities. They can be responsible to the society not only by the way of helping poor or adopting a child from ashrams but also not harming the society by using the car by a single person. They can save petrol.

Hey guys,

According to me, it is desirable that one should contribute to the social sector while being employed in the corporate world. But practically, working in a corporate environment makes a person little selfish. Generally, people work in corporate with the motive of earning profit. So at some point, they neglect the society if they get a chance to earn huge profit. If one wants and is willing, he can surely contribute to the social sector. It's just the difference in the mindset of the people. Some are all about money and money, but some people do actually care about the society they live in. So no matter they are in corporate sector or any other sector, they will try to contribute towards the society.

Hello, everyone.

I'm Rahul Kumar.

Before putting my own view I would like to state a quote. It is 'We can be a millionaire if find out the need of the society and working on it rather than working for money'.

By this statement, I would like to state that many people have emerged as a better corporate leader just because they have found out the real scarcity of the society and then worked on them. If we talk of Amazon, Google or Apple, where they have come from? Actually, they have realised the real need of the society.

If we talk of one of the famous TV shows, SATYMEV JAYATE; What actually they are doing? They are actually depicting social issues and thereby earning huge amount of money. So here Amir khan is being employed in the corporate world as well as contributing to the social sector.

Hence, I can say that we can not be a better corporate leader until and unless our work contributes to the society.

Hello Friends,

Yes, I also agree with you all that one can contribute to the social sector while being employed in the Corporate World. The main thing is that there should be a thought regarding the contribution to the social sector. If one is not even thinking to contribute, then how can he or she contribute? But if one is thinking to do then yes there are a lot of opportunities to do so. In India, one employed person can do his or her job for minimum 8 hours daily. He or she still has 16 hours to do any social sector job such as to contribute to any poor society or any backwards community for uplifting their lifestyle. I can give myself as an example.

Now I am studying in Engineering college. There are classes, labs, assignments, tests and many more things to do in my college as a student. But on the other hand, I ma connected to an NGO ANKURIT started by our branch seniors. Under this, we have to go to a deaf and dumb Government school. We interact with those children. Occasionally we use to organise any drawing sort of competition among them so that there will be a competition for growing rapidly. I am doing this for 2 years and I can also manage to maintain my semester aggregate 8 CGPA.

So, Yes! one can contribute to the social sector while being employed in the Corporate World.

Thank You.

Social service is what a individual contribute for the society. So if he's concerned about the society and want to do something for the society he'll definitely take out time for the same and serve the society irrespective of being in a corporate world. Considering the monetary part, for doing any social service don't mean that there should be a financial contribution for the same, cleaning your surroundings, roads and parks doesn't make you loose some money rather it gives a message of civic sense among society similarly filling a poverty stricken child's tummy even for one time doesn't make you loose your valuables.

We are living in a society where a simple middle class and single bread earner contributes each day in similar manner daily without any complain but with a higher level of satisfaction. So your work being hindrance to your social work is vague.

Hi all,

In my opinion for the the development of a country we need money. Money is contributed by corporate sector. If more number of corporate sectors arise, the more people become employed. As a result of employment poverty can be alienated to an extent. If we promote more number of corporate sectors our country will soon become developed from a developing nation.

Taking Gujarat as an instance, years ago Gujarat was really bashed up in the quake. But now it has become more facilitated than any other states. Its only due to the corporate world.

I think yes its possible for one to contribute to the social sector while being employed in the corporate sector. Today there are so many sources (NGO) through which, any desirable person whether he is a private sector employee or public sector employee, must help poor and un-affordable person and children.

Today there are so many NGOs working towards social sector. So, by denoting money, our knowledge to that children who can't afford it, is possible. I think, the matter most is that one must have great devotion and dedication to work for social sector. That's the best way to contribute towards the development of our this very MOTHER INDIA.

Dear All,

According to me, the corporate world doesn't mean, the people working in Private Organizations, Corporate companies like MNCs. It means group of people working together for their individual growth and Contribution to the Social Sector doesn't mean simply donating our money, clothes, food. To poor, orphans, old., these are a part of social service.

The individual have to understand the need of society at that point of time and should take responsibility in fulfilling the requirement. Each and every individual should have some responsibility to the society irrespective of age, gender, income. Without expecting anything in return from society. How the individuals thinks of their basic needs and fulfill them in accordance with time. Likewise they have to think about the society and should do the needful within their capability.

One can totally contribute to the social sector while being employed in the Corporate World. Various companies have a separate CSR(Corporate Social Responsibility) Division which focuses on taking up activities meant for the benefit of the masses, i.e, the social sector. For e.g. Coca Cola provides for the education of thousands of people through its CSR campaign.

What matters is the will from within to force a change. Even if you are in the corporate world and have compassion for the people you'll end up doing a lot for the needy and thus contribute to their development.

While being employed in the the corporate world, it's a responsibility of person to contribute to the social sector. Man being a social animal can attain satisfaction only after contributing to society.

To celebrate one's success alone does not provide him happiness, when celebrated with others utopia is experienced.

Formation of various NGOs is a pragmatic example of how the corporate sector contributes to the social sector. The benefactor of these social organization is always a corporate employee.

The initiative by the top business tycoon such as Bill Gates, is a metamorphosis in the corporate industry, which is encouraging more tycoons to walk on the same footprints.

Because it is not necessary that is one who are working in corporate sector can not work for their society is you have time for earning money then you should also works for those who need your support. Society is that environment where you actually live, then what's the wrong with that. Many times people just give a common excuse that they don't have time for all those work but I don't think that it needs your 24 hr or your working hour but at least you can give your 2 to 3 hr in your weekend days.

The list of work with which you can contribute towards society are endless. You can create awareness in villages about various social issues, importance of education which leads them towards a successful and healthy life.

I too agree that corporate is a field where we rarely get time for looking upon our fellow people in society. But that must not be a hindrance in helping people through social sector.

In fact they have a greater scope since they comparatively earn more and can involve in these activities comfortably in economic point of view.

Also in addition to that many corporate like IBM have separate dates in their calender purely devoted for the welfare of various social sectors mentioned for old age, physically challenged etc, so it becomes much easier for employees of such organisation.

On a concluding note I would say that we humans are put in this world for a purpose. To make our life purposeful we need to take a step towards charity despite being employed or not in a corporate.

My personal belief when we talk about the corporate sector, it's about a doing a job like others do with the same heart, same emotions. There are so many companies which have some way or the other linked to some NGO's or other societies, which are active and helping the people who are in need. We should identify the channel to help the needy. Rest everything will fall on place and will give us some peace and happiness of helping others.

Yes, I do agree that one can really contribute to social sector inspite of being employed in corporate sector. There are many ways to contribute to seciety i.e. Donation, running some awareness probramme for society and teaching poor students for free or very less fee etc.

There are many corporate organizations like TATA, GENPACT etc. Which are allied with some NGOs and wellfare societies and donate money and clothes etc. These companies also organise some charity programmes like organizing some fession shows, singing & Dancing events which help in collecting money and then the collected money is donated to NGOs, Hospitals or schools & colleges in terms of scholerships to the poor students that is in way a contribution to the society/country.

At personal level an indivisual can take out some time and disseminate his/her knowledge around that he/she get there from the corporate world. That can really help the people in getting a right path and building a good career. Teaching poor children/students who can not go to good schools/colleges, will be great contribution. So its our moral duty that we contribute to social section as much as we could in all the manners.

Being part of a corporate world we are used to things like:keep clients first, meeting deadlines, making profits, cost cutting etc and hence, it is belived that coorporate is all about profit maximization and nothing else.

But, if we look around, we will find so many examples which prove that even coorporates are invloving themselves in paying back to the socitey. ITC and p and g donates 1 re from each of their products for community welfare programmes, itc has come up with e choupals, tata is involved in providing various facilties to its employees in jamshedpur etc.

Yes by being in the corporate world its possible to contribute to the social sector. As it's our moral responsibility to contribute to the society. Individually it can be bit tougher but norms or measures undertaken by the top management people of the company can be followed which is in the direction of goodwill of the society.

As there are no. Of companies which are company in front with measures which are for the society. For example- p&g donate rs. 1 on every purchase of its product for the education of the poor people. Similarly there are TATA which believe in ethics a lot which again in favor of the society. The body shop realize the importance of nature in our lives and they urge to protect the environment for our future generations.

According to my view being a corporate employee we can also contribute our time for social activity's in weekends as some corporates giving holiday in week ends. If we do so some of our neighbours will also show the interest on doing social activities.

If we are doing like this then our next generation also know what is society and how we should work, live in society. If we are escaping by saying no im not having time or I'm too busy then often some days our next generation will ask to us wt is society mam/dad just like some children don't know about some animals.

Yes of course. One can b a part of social sector, while being into corporate world. For ex: TISS (TATA Institute of Social Sciences). TATA is one of the largest businesses in the country but. In spite of being into the corporate world, this initiative by TATA group shows an effort by it to be into the social sector. Apart from this, indirectly also this is contributing to the social sector, as the students passing out from this institute, will be a part of the social sector.

So, in my view, corporate and social sector can definitely go hand in hand.

Why we are living in such kind of society if we are thinking the life in real manners it must be. Without society there is no value of money. Money is for life then life is core relate to society. We brought up in society, our future will have to grow. Which one is necessary. ? obviously society is must either you are corporate employee or business man.

Yes, ofcourse I agree with Mr. Raju to some extent.

One can! In my openion participating parallel in both sectors for the long time couldn't be that much easy, as working in corporate world finds finds ourselves with no time and social work needs that, initially it feels good, but as the responsibilities increase either in any field. May push ourselves into great stress, even into depression of not doing justice to any of fields.

One can search for the minds thinking the same at work, forming a group, discussing the issues involved, sharing the responsibilities, moving collectively can only make a good contributer to society, but also makes oneself satisfied with whatever being done.

It will depend on your company business or the Social organisation in which you want to involved. If both are in same group or Aim then you could not attempt social activity during your job tenure but if there are different type of Product or activity of your current organization or the Social Unit in which you want to do participate, there are no any rule who can stop you.

This is real Good thought if everybody involved in social sector then Our Social life will be improve.

If there is Will there is way. There is no meaning in saying I don't have time. If we think well we can do lot of contribution to the society with little money, time and effort. They can paying your income tax at the right time, creating your software or website for non profit organisations and donations to the various charity sites like rotary.

As a corporate employ if you have good money you have to contribute more to the society since all money comes from the society.

If you want to contribute something to society there is no difference between corporate employ, middle-class person, poor man. Any one contribute to the society in someway in my opinion we all must do.

Friends. You all are concentrating only on money but think of the other side. The effort and the time that can be spent for social work. It will be limiting them from doing that if a person is employed in corporate.

Yes. In today's life everyone wants money but we are living in a society. We are totally dependent on our environment. So any how we have to contribute some part of us means some time to social sector.
