The CSRHub overall ratings for companies are not fixed and absolute. Instead, they are driven by the rating profiles of our users. We provide four green community rating profiles that represent the viewpoints of three of our largest groups of users and the average view of all of our users.
Each subscribed user can set up one or more personal profiles. During this process, a user decides which elements of corporate social responsibility are most important to her or him. A user can also incorporate her or his view on various special issues. These settings also change our ratings.
Users can switch between rating profiles and borrow profiles from other users or sites. Professional users can publish their profiles as a "group profile." Users who find and borrow a group profile will then see any changes the professional users make in their group profile settings.
