Ginevra Gravili

The presence of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in firms has grown in recent years but the rate of adoption among nations diverges considerably. The way to involve employees and the diffusion of the socially responsible values into the organizational culture can depend to the cultural dimensions of a country. This paper explores the relationship between attitudes to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and the cultural dimensions of business activity identified by Hofstede (2005) and Globe (2004) through a longitudinal analysis of Cranet Network based on 2,678 firms located in 13 countries. This paper attempts to focus on the relationship between environmental sustainability in terms of CRS and culture, interpreting the HRM practices in green organization. This study can be used as a guide for managers, giving an indication of the link between environmental strategy, human resource management and culture dimensions across countries.
