The Ecuadorian financial system embarks on this problem, which seeks to guide its activities considering the expectations of different interest groups affected by its actions to contribute to sustainable development. The objective of this document is to carry out a comparative analysis of the corporate social responsibility of financial institutions in Ecuador. For this reason, three of the four FIs considered as large are taken as a reference, as these are the ones that apply the Global Reporting Initiative and ISO26000 social responsibility standards. His memories of social responsibility allowed the application of a measuring instrument. For the economy category, a comparison of their balance sheets was made, highlighting the FI that generated the highest profitability for its investors. In the social category, the perception of their collaborators is measured and the institution where they perceive a better work environment stands out. And finally, in the environment category, the data from the reports of the three institutions were analyzed, and by means of a checklist based on the Global Reporting Initiative, the institution that most complies with the CSR indices was determined.</span></p> Bélgica Cecilia Arias Macías Carmen Luisa Soto Montoya Copyright (c) 2021 Bélgica Cecilia Arias Macías, Carmen Luisa Soto Montoya 2021-12-20 2021-12-20 6 30 e210870 e210870 10.46652/rgn.v6i30.870 Performance and managerial competencies in the Public Dry Cargo Autotransport. An empirical review in the middle of Mexico <p class="p1"><span class="s1">Today in Mexico, the sector of Public Transportation of Dry Cargo presents a transportation agency on federal highways, thus it also shows the need to optimize the supply chain associated with said transportation, in this sense, what is the relationship between managerial skills and the performance of companies dedicated to Public Dry Cargo Transport? To answer this question, it was decided to select as a unit of analysis the Metropolitan Area of the State of Hidalgo in the middle of Mexico, particularly, fieldwork was carried out in 61 companies in the sector under study. For this purpose, construction of the managerial competences was carried out from different positions resulting in an approach from behavioral, attitudinal, formative, organizational, and leadership perspectives; methodologically, a delimitation of three types of variables was carried out: a) the interaction of managerial competences; (b) standardization and c) its impact on the performance of the organizations that supported factor analysis as the main analytical strategy. Of the main results, it is highlighted that there is no relationship between managerial competencies and expected performance in the sector under analysis and based on individual needs, as well as a psychological and sociological reference, the need to develop managerial competencies from a holistic rather than behavioral perspective was identified, as shown by the findings to improve the performance of organizations.</span></p> Eduardo Cruz Aldana Luis Arturo Guerrero Azpeitia Copyright (c) 2021 Eduardo Cruz Aldana, Luis Arturo Guerrero Azpeitia 2021-12-19 2021-12-19 6 30 e210869 e210869 10.46652/rgn.v6i30.869
