Despite the prevalence of corporate social responsibility (CSR) practices, there has been minimal attempt to provide a summary of the reasons for establishing CSR programmes in Nigeria bank contexts. When it comes to actual employee motivation efforts, Africa and Nigeria lack the resources (funds), which have resulted to the situation by which any company may choose not to participate in CSR initiatives for a variety of reasons. This study focused on the impact of corporate social responsibility on employee motivation in Nigeria banking sector. The study adopted a descriptive survey research design, as the study was a quantitative research. Positivist philosophy was the research philosophy adopted for this study while quantitative primary data was collected via questionnaire from a sample of three banks (First bank, Guarantee Trust bank and Sterling bank) in the three tertiary institutions in Nigeria. Descriptive and inferential analysis were the two stages of data analysis done in this study with help of the version 23 of SPSS. The findings of the study were as follows that: Corporate social responsibility has a significant impact on employee pay reward in Nigeria banking sector; CSR has a significant impact on employee recognition in Nigeria banking sector; and CSR has a significant impact on employee work environment in Nigeria banking sector. Based on these findings the study recommends that Nigerian banks must ensure that its CSR program provides the necessary incentive, reward, or pay to motivate employees to improve their performance. Employees should be checked to see if they are been motivated by the CSR activities that are been made available to them.
