Mr. Sean Lees, 2nd year Program Leader
Swiss Hotel Management School
Dear Mr. Lees,
Responding your commission, to conduct a research about Corporate Social Responsibility within the hospitality industry, enclosed is our summarized report, The Case Study of Corporate Social Responsibility in the Hospitality Industry. This report is published as the final outcome of our CSR study, which contains our recommendations along with some ideas to improve the CSR strategy implemented in Royal Caribbean International as our chosen establishment.
A couple of recommendations which we came up with, is to attach a more promising vision to their shareholders, even though, their stock price is somehow decreasing, should they manage to convince them about their future prospect, and that this company is effectively generating superior returns, which makes it profitable company, to implant shares in. As well as their “GET INVOLVED VOLUNTEER EVERYWHERE” (G.I.V.E) program, which created to support the CSR strategy, will gain more awareness from the society, if they manage to have a wider area to scope.
Hopefully, the results of our study collected in this report will be useful and meet or even exceeding the expectations you are probably seeking. Should you need any further discussions about this topic, please let us know.
