During the past few decades stakeholders’ expectation for businesses and organizations to behave ethically and to act responsible towards their society has grown vastly. At the same time, growing number of studies in the field of corporate social responsibility (CSR) have investigated the needs, effects and benefits of CSR. However, majority of the studies are concerned with CSR from the perspectives of company reputation, relationship with customers or from the aspect of financial performance. Reasonably limited number of studies have focused on the effects of CSR on employees, and amongst these studies there is almost no evidence of such study being carried out in Ireland. The purpose of this study is to investigate the extent of which CSR effects on employees’ commitment to the organization. Social identity theory (SIT) was used as the base in explaining the relationship between the CSR and the employee organizational commitment (EOC). In this study quantitative research method is employed. Survey in the form of self-completed questionnaires was conducted on a sample of 100 working professionals in Ireland and the collected data was analysed using the SPSS. Results from the analysis indicated that CSR to social and non-social stakeholders, CSR to employees, and CSR to customers were all significant factors in influencing EOC.
