Employee Preferences for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Programs: a CSR Study Including a CSR Construct & Work Orientation

by Ast, Jesica Elizabeth

Abstract

This research focused on employee preferences for CSR programs to understand if those preferences could lead to better CSR strategizing. Specifically, a CSR construct proposed by Rangan, Chase, and Sohel (2015) was analyzed though Exploratory Factor Analysis to understand if participants (employees in for-profit businesses) observed the CSR programs within the construct. Work orientation was the analyzed characteristic to see if this variable affected preferences toward CSR programs. Inconclusive results indicated that participants may not align with the proposed CSR construct, thus research could not proceed with the original hypotheses based on that construct. However, further analysis of data prompted a modification of the study to examine the importance placed on CSR programs based on Work Orientation. Results revealed that some Work Orientations were more statistically significant than others, but indicated that those with a Job orientation placed less importance on CSR programs compared to those with a Calling orientation.
