A. Research Question: How does corporate responsibility, ethics, and accountability come in play when running a business? B. Explanation of Research Question: This research question is important to me and my field of study because my current job is related to corporate America, which is Alabama Power. Even though I know about the corporate world and how to accomplish certain things, I also feel like I could learn a ton more, when completing this research proposal. My research question is basically asking how a company is doing when it comes to making an impact on the economy and the environment, and also how a company is doing within their company, and their performance overall.
