Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting Abstractpeer-review


Understanding the peculiarities of employees’ social expectations, primarily addressed through Employee-Centred Corporate Social Responsibility (EC-CSR) practices and the attitudinal consequences of fulfilment and breach of these expectations should at least be a key issue for scholars and corporate practitioners. However, this aspect of employment relations appears to be undermined in the knowledge domain. This paper highlights the gap in this area of research, and subsequently posit that psychological contract theory and social exchange theory embodies some theoretical prospects for explaining these phenomena. A conceptual framework as well as methodological directions for considering the nature of employee social expectations and the consequences of its fulfilment and breach were offered.
