Özet

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has emerged as a prominent term in management literature. CSR refers to the extent to which businesses meet the economic, legal, ethical, and discretionary responsibilities imposed on them by their stakeholders. CSR is suggested to have a positive effect on employees' organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). Also, managers are likely to perform ethical behaviors in their leadership roles when management supports CSR initiatives. In this study, we examined the relationship among CSR, OCB and ethical leadership using a sample of 60 employees from Nevsehir(Cappadocia-Turkey). Our findings indicate a significant and positive relationship between CSR and ethical leadership. However, no significant relationship was found either between OCB and CSR, nor OCB and ethical leadership.
