In the last years we witness a significant increase of society’s overall focus upon issues concerning sustainable development. This trend affected both companies and consumers. The sustainable development concept is present both in the scientific literature, but also in companies board rooms. Companies start to engage in CSR activities in order to respond to an external demand, while taking into consideration the positive effects of CSR. The article presents the results of a quantitative research regarding the employees’ attitude regarding social responsibility activities of their employers. In the beginning a short literature review is presented.

Jean-Pascal Gond, Assâad El-Akremi, Jacques Igalens, Valérie Swaen
This paper analyzes Corporate Social Responsibility‘s (CSR) influence on employees. We integrate social identity theory and social exchange theory in a new framework. This framework explains how employees‘ perceptions of CSR trigger attitudes and behavior in the workplace which affect organizational, social and environmental performance. This model bridges micro and macro researches on socially responsible behavior, articulates social identification and social exchange processes, and explains how CSR contributes to corporate performance by influencing employees‘ behavior.

Employees’ perceptions of organizational corporate social responsibility (CSR) are usually a mixture of personal experiences of internal CSR and actions that affect external stakeholders. Recent research points to numerous benefits from employees’ positive view of company’s CSR efforts, however, analyses of employees’ perceptions and attitudes are still rare. The aim of this paper is to explore employees’ perceptions of company’s behaviour towards relevant stakeholders, and the extent to which such behaviours are seen as commendable, taking into consideration the company’s reputation. Analysing CSR orientation through employees’ perceptions can help distinguish between company’s genuine CSR orientation and simple window dressing. Using a mixed method approach that combines questionnaire, interview and content analysis, this exploratory study focuses on the perceptions of employees in a company recognized for socially responsible behaviour in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The results suggest that employees perceive their company as socially responsible, but also that there are variations in perceptions depending on the stakeholder group and point out the importance of the national business system and culture in CSR evaluation. The empirical findings correspond to its public reputation and provide legitimacy for the awards received.
