An emerging spectrum of employee CSR behaviour: Development and empirical exploration of a theoretical model of socially responsible employee behaviour

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis

Abstract

This thesis puts forward and examines a spectrum of behaviours employees can engage in at work with the intention of benefiting the environment and/or society. These behaviours are termed employee CSR behaviours (eCSR) and include in-role behaviour, behaviour endorsed by the organisation, independent behaviour initiated by the employee, and behaviour to stop social irresponsibility. An inductive qualitative study explores what CSR means to employees and how their conceptualisations of CSR affect their behaviour, followed by an exploratory quantitative study that examines the relationships between the proposed antecedents and the different types of behaviours. Findings and implications are then discussed.
