Abstract

We extend Aguinis and Glavas’ (2013) work by focusing on the underlying mechanisms that drive employees’ reactions to embedded and peripheral CSR. We draw from attribution theory, and specifically utilize Kelley’s (1967) covariation model to explore employee causal reasoning towards the firm’s CSR activities thus delving into an overlooked issue in the employee-level CSR research.

Keywords: Corporate Social Responsibility, Employees, Causal-Attributions
