Corporate Social Responsibility: Perceived Performance & Importance

across Industries and Countries

Robert Bluze, Karissa Reyes

Abstract: The focus of this study was to explore the degree to which different cultures perceive the performance and importance of corporate socially responsible (CSR) initiatives differently throughout a broad range of industries. Using Hofstede’s cultural dimensions as a framework for our implications, the study attempts to examine CSR perceptions in, Italy, Spain, and the United States, in terms of their national culture. We then explored correlations within Hofstede’s dimensions that appear to connect national culture to the perceived aspects of CSR.
