七步模型顾名思义就是在这个过程中有七个重要的步骤。作为这个过程的第一步，商业案例得到了发展。这有助于建立公司的总体目标或共同愿景。这是为了确保所有的利益相关者都知道公司的最终目标。这个模型的第二步是评估公司的资源。应该有可行性确保流程可以用公司的资源完成。第三步是调查和确定公司对社会责任和承诺的动机。这涉及到发现流程的可行性和员工完成CSR的动机（Boiral and Henri，2015）。模式的第四步是承担公司的社会责任。让利益相关方参与公司向前发展是非常重要的。公司的第五步是企业社会责任的战略。公司的利益相关方在流程的第六步中已经得到认可和参与。这使公司能够帮助获得利益相关者的合作。这个过程的最后一步是测量和报告过程。在这个过程中，有事件报告，在这个过程中有责任。这使公司能够了解他们的流程。在这个七步模型中，这个过程的内在脆弱性被引入了这个尝试。
The seven step model as the name implies has seven important steps in its process. As a first step in this process, the business case is developed. This aids in the setting up of the overall objective or the shared vision of the company. This is to ensure that all the stakeholders are aware of the final objective of the company. The second step of this model is the evaluation of the resources of the company. There should be feasibility to ensure that the processes can be completed with the resources of the company. The third step lies in the investigation and identification of the motives of the company towards social responsibility and commitment. This involves finding out about the feasibility of the processes and the employee motivation behind the completion of the CSR (Boiral and Henri, 2015). The fourth step of the model is committing towards the social responsibility of the company. It is important to have stakeholder engagement for the company to move forward. The fifth step of the company is the strategizing of the CSR. There is recognition and engagement of the stakeholders of the company in the sixth step of the processes. This enables the company to aid in gaining the stakeholder collaboration. The final step of the process is the measurement and the reporting of the processes. In this process, there is reporting of the events and there is accountability in this process. This enables the companies to gain understanding of their processes. The inherent vulnerability of the process is brought to the foray in this seven step model.
