ABSTRACT
The article discusses the changes in Japanese corporate management as firms adopt more to the demands of corporate social responsibility (CSR). CSR is said to have become a stimulus for a change in the way firms in Japan are managed in the areas of employment, environment and shareholders. It is said that the corporations in 2008 are practicing CSR and are competing for the strengthening of corporate values as they strive to get rid of the unfavorable effects of tradition. Better approaches to varied kinds of stockholders are continued to be explored.
