Abstract

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a growing topic in Business and Psychology research, especially on the micro level of its effects on individual employee outcomes. This study aims to propose a new scale, which is a sub-dimension of Person-Organization (P-O) fit, such that there’s a Person-CSR (PCSR) fit: the perceived congruence between an individuals values with an organization’s CSR initiatives. We predict that P-CSR fit will explain additional variance over and beyond P-O fit for organizational outcomes such as organizational commitment, organizational identity, job satisfaction, and organizational citizenship behaviors. Further, we predict the relationship between P-CSR and these organizational outcomes will be moderated by the individual’s social responsibility values.
