Summary/Abstract: Organizations Social Responsibility (or CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility) represents a new way „to make business” in the new European economic framework. An increasing number of contemporary companies decide, voluntarily, to contribute to a better society and a cleaner environment. Their strategies include social responsibility as an answer to a variety of social, economic and environmental pressures. These companies aim to transmit a signal towards all the stakeholders: employees, shareholders, investors, customers, providers, public authorities, and non – governmental organizations. Therefore, CSR is a concept which has modified the strategy of many companies. In this paper, the authors attempt a qualitative study of a large number of companies from western region of Romania. The study seeks an answer to a precise question: is CSR known and applied in the Romanian business environment? Our work is focused on four dimensions of CSR: human resource management, relations with stakeholders, community and human rights, environment. Starting from these points, the authors propose a multicriterial model for CSR measurement.
