Recommendations for a low cost csr campaign

Memo Final of the of Lab Section December 7, Subject: Recommendations for a Low Cost CSR Campaign Critter Control is one of the leading wild life control firm in the United States. The services offered by our organization are based on the notion to help humanity as well as saving the wildlife thus truly serving the nature. Since being a socially engaged organization it is needed that to take a step towards helping the society and proving ourselves as a Corporate Social Citizen (Mallin, 2009). Having strong presence in all the states of U. S. we can focus on an issue troubling a particular state specifically The Washington D. C., and then solving it can help us in the implementation of our corporate social responsibility maneuver (Mullerat and Brennan, 2011). Mice Infestation and Washington D. C. Since Washington, D. C. is one of the well developed cities of the world, residents usually encounter the mice problem along with the damage caused due to inhabitation of mice within the house. It has been ranked among the 25 major cities of the United States being the potentially increased risk of rodent infestation by the “ The Earth Guard” in 2009 while it was ranked 7th among the American cities having potential for rodent infestation in a survey conducted in 2007 (Jaffe, 2012). The Mus musculus or the house mouse, is considered to be one of the most difficult and costly rodents within the United States especially Washington D. C. House mice flourish under diverse conditions such as in and around commercial structures and homes and commercial structures as well as on agricultural land and in open fields. This species inclines to live nearly completely inside buildings, heightening the opportunities for striking with people and confounds a potential menace to public health via the illnesses it may carry. House mice deplete and contaminate food intended for pets, humans, livestock, or other animals. Moreover, they cause substantial damage to property and structures, and they can convey microorganisms that induce diseases like salmonellosis, a kind of food poisoning. The house mouse is the one of the most victorious rodents in accommodating to live with humans. It is detected almost anyplace humans are, feeding upon human food, taking refuge in human structures, and procreating at a noteworthy rate. It can be regarded as the most difficult and economically significant vertebrate pest, polluting food of value in millions of dollars, detrimental possessions, and getting electrical fires with its ceaseless gnawing. Mice Troubles: Damage and Diseases House mice are a frequent problem in all types of businesses and in homes. Approximately every resident of this large metropolitan can remember times when he/ she were annoyed by mice. They are inflictions to both poor and rich alike. The persistent drain imposed by house mice on stored fiber and food, and the impairment they induce to personal belongings are the most severe economic threats. Thus it can be said that the problem is so huge that providing a solution will help the residents of Washington D. C. and it will be sigh of relief. We being professional in the services can handle the issue and make use of this opportunity to serve the community and prove ourselves as a socially responsible organization (Critter Control). Whilst the threat to human health is an adequate reason for curbing domestic infestations, it would be primitive to presume that this is the only justification. Even as the wastage of crops and cereals has necessitated the advancement of mice control strategies within agricultural areas, so the impairment done to the framework of buildings and goods in urban centers is not fiddling. Mice have been concerned in floods, fires and explosions as a consequence of their gnawing actions. Low Cost Strategy Our usual services for controlling mice involve three steps. This process includes sanitation, exclusion and mouse-proofing, and finally the reduction of population using toxicants and traps. So the low cost strategy that I intend to propose for the implementation of corporate social responsibility involves enforcing an outreach program to guide the residents about mice controlling and removal strategies (Urip, 2010). As being part of our organization’s commitment to community, the professionals of Critter Control will voluntarily deliver a speaking session once a month in all districts. Moreover, the program implementation will require a minimum cost of setting arrangements for the speaker session (VanHuss, 2004). The initiation of this effort will be done from introducing the problem detection criteria. These include various indicators left by the animal such as droppings, noises; smudge marks, tracks, gnawing as well as urine stains After detection has been done an effective mice-control programs focused on repellents, exclusions and deterrents will be explained. Since mice like other rodents are attracted due to availability of shelter as well as food, both outdoors and indoors. So this access can be eliminated by keeping floors, counter surfaces, and cabinets crumbs free and other such strategies. Then afterwards in case of mice detection, it should be removed from the site using seal trash, and similar strategies. The speaker session will involve utilization of multimedia so that visual aid may be utilized for effective delivery of information. Since being an overcrowded metropolitan, Washington D. C. residents are often encountered with the problem of mice infestation causing damage to food, property as well as may threat human health. Being professionally equipped with the skills to solve such issue, could serve the community by implementing a low cost CSR strategy (Schwartz, 2011). The proposed strategy involves enforcement of an outreach program for guiding the residents about controlling the problem free of cost. References Critter Control. (n. d.). Mice Control & Removal.
