Abstract

Organisational Behaviour research identifies CSR as an influential aspect to Employee Behaviour. Thus this dissertation addresses the organisational behaviour dimension to CSR thereby looking into the impact CSR perception of employees has on one employee attitude, organisational commitment from a developing nation, Nepal’s viewpoint. CSR research on developing nation lack the focus on one stakeholder group on one hand and on the other the existing literature suggest that CSR studies looking into employee attitudes has focussed around perspective employees not existing employees.

Hence, the objective of the research is multi-level. Firstly, this research bases its research around the concept of social identity theory and identifies the relationship different CSR aspects (external, procedural justice and training) has on organisational commitment. Secondly, this research identifies the prominence of different CSR aspects in increasing organisational commitment of Nepalese Employees. And finally, the research looks into if turnover intentions influence the commitment level.

The finding of the dissertation suggests that whilst all three aspects to CSR i.e. external CSR, procedural justice and training provision has a positive relationship with the commitment level. Unlike what I found in the literature review, this dissertation project finds that external CSR has a greater prominence than an internal CSR aspect, procedural justice in the research settings of Nepal. Furthermore, the external environment conditions of Nepal meant, no negative relationship between turnover intentions and organisational commitment was found. Hence, turnover intentions are not a predictor to organisational commitment when it comes to CSR actions is a developing nation, Nepal.
