Sustainable statistics
¿Which are the outstanding tasks for the companies? 
Surveys made by PROhumana show the opinion of the internal collaborators,sometimes absent, but always fundamental. Key players and observer of theenterprise actions, the vote of this majority is shown in the following graphics.
Apart from the discussion to define a proper concept to describe what means an organizationaware of its responsible and sustainable management - at present we face changes that fewventure to visualize - but all of us are key players in it. There is no doubt that since 2010 we arewitnessing a radical change in business management and other themes that define theeconomic and investment agenda, and its relationship with governments, citizenship and peersin the world.Since that date is has been possible to share and compare some results regarding responsibleand integrated management of some visionary companies in Chile. We mean those whoconsider in their main strategies economic, social and environmental axis, including areas suchas internal audience, corporative governance and suppliers policies, among a wide spectrum ovariables considered by CSR. We looked at them from the point of view of integratedmanagement according to PROhumana CSR management model: these are the main pointsfound this year among the 40 participating companies:
Figure 1: % of companies with integrated management aspects of CSR*
Sample 2012: 40 companies
 It was detected that almost all the participating companies have an explicit CSR policy.
Nevertheless, by means of verifiers, it was detected that a high percentage of them don’t
contemplate CSR implementation, evaluation and communication in their developmentpractices.Supported by the fact that only a 33% of them appoint a member of the board to safeguardthe comprehensive management of CSR, explaining in this manner the weakness observed atnational level in making CSR an integral part of the compa
ny’s objectives
 Nevertheless it is possible to observe progress regarding carbon footprint measurement in thecompanies, with an outstanding increase in the last years. The area where we still observe amedium level of comprehensive management, is in having a position regarding how can thecompanies contribute to overcome social inequality in our country, we observe littlecommitment of companies in the debate an little participation in the development of publicpolicies. This
far from the OECD member countries where the private public Alliance is a keyaxis of sustainable human development management.
Employees Talk
After eight years applying the survey to workers, it seems relevant to show the changes found- in a universe of 257.644 people surveyed during that period.
In 2012, the universe was 85.985 workers, expressed in a sample of 11.132 workers thatrepeated evaluation this year, showing how knowledge is evolving, compared to
previousyears. Among the 40 companies evaluated this year we found the following results forsome of the sub-
divisions of employees’ survey.

*Sample of workers: 11,312. The asseverations of the employee survey are evaluated on a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 describes not atall their company and 5 fully describes their company.
 Some aspects that stand out in 2012 evaluation - compared to 2010 and 2011- are thefollowing: Considerable increase of scores in evaluation regarding the code of ethics and itsimplementation. It could be the result of facts occurred at national and international level.Ethical and responsible management is not an option for the company any more. It became a
political and citizens’ demand. It is possible to state that this variable was not in the business
agenda 10 years ago, it was only present in those companies that had made ethics an axis of 
their management. It stands out that workers still don’t have a positive evaluation about
implementation and communication of the code of ethics to the different stakeholders.It is a point of concern to see the ve
ry low employees’ evaluation regarding dialog with
stakeholders. This is not a minor issue today, when citizens have clear demands regarding therole of companies. Probably this evaluation allows confirming that the mode that has prevailedin different business sectors is being somewhat reluctant to dialog.Another aspect that is important to observe is the sudden drop in the evaluation scores madeby the workers regarding corporate governance. It is justified because it is still a weak area innational companies - and that is the observation of the workers in their companies
Evenmore; in august 2012 SVS stated a new standard for the regulatory framework for corporategovernment. Nevertheless, some business representatives that are considered national leadersin these areas reacted in opposition to different suggestions of the enforcing entity. And lastly,
