Traditionally focusing on the macro-level of analysis (e.g., CSR and organizational financial outcomes), CSR scholarship in recent years has shifted to studying the micro-foundations of CSR (micro-CSR); that is, looking at the role of individuals in relation to CSR. Although this research has been growing, limited efforts have been made to engage in dialogue across the two core disciplinary research streams in micro-CSR (i.e., psychological and sociological). In order to bridge this gap, the current symposium brings together an internationally- and disciplinarily-diverse group of scholars. The symposium includes four presentations followed by a discussion. With this symposium, we aim to: a) expand our understanding of the micro- foundations of CSR, with a particular focus on attending to both streams of research; b) develop avenues for further interdisciplinary research on the topic; and c) contribute to knowledge on the processes and boundary conditions shaping employees’ perceptions and reactions to organizational CSR, as well as shaping the experiences and efforts of CSR managers implementing CSR in organizations.
