Abstract

Stakeholders’ expectations of corporations and organizations to operate ethically and responsibly toward their society have risen dramatically over the last few decades. Simultaneously, an increasing number of studies in the field of corporate social responsibility (CSR) have been investigated the demands, consequences, and advantages of CSR. Most literatures focused with CSR from the viewpoint of company brand image, the financial performance aspect and customer relationship. A relatively small number of studies have concentrated on the impact of CSR on employees and there is absolutely no evidence among these studies of such a study being conducted in Ireland. The aim of this research is to examine the impact CSR have on employee commitment in the finance industry in Ireland. The theory of social identity was used as the framework to describe the correlation between CSR and the employee commitment. The quantitative analysis approach is used in this research. A survey of 100 working professionals in the finance industry in Ireland was carried using self-completed questionnaires, and the obtained data was analysed using SPSS software. According to the results of this research there was a small correlation between CSR and employee commitment but there was not a significant difference or effect.
