2007 (English)In: The XIIIth European Congress of Work and Organizational Psychology: Sustainable Work: Promoting Human and Organizational Vitality, 2007Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a relatively new concept in Sweden and awakens the interest of both companies and the general public. There are differences in the views of which role the companies should fulfil in the society and understanding these differences can lead to increased cooperation between parties. The present study uses Montgomery’s (1994) Perspective Model to prepare the concept Corporate Social Responsibility and establish the position companies and the general public adopt in this issue. The various opinions on this concept were collected with help of qualitative methods such as content analysis and thematic inductive analysis. According to the results there are differences between companies and the general public’s perspective on CSR: some responsibilities the general public attributes to companies are not as clearly accepted by the companies. Another result shows a changing in the general public’s opinion in the CSR issue. A third result relates specific to the Perspective Model and its successful application on other than psychological concepts.
