Abstract

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) focuses on many categories of stakeholders and
results, including non-organization stakeholders and results that go beyond financial outcomes.
Thus, CSR extends the notion of work to go beyond the viewpoint of a mission, job, intraindividual, intra-organizational, and benefit and offers an ideal medium for individuals to try and
find meaning through work. A person-centered conceptualization of CSR by concentrating on
the making of senses as an underlying and unifying process by which individuals are
constructive and conscious agents who search and find meaning by work is followed.
Conceptualization enables us to understand variation in CSR effects due to variation in employee
sensitivity and meaningfulness of CSR experience by employees; highlight synergies through
disconnected hypotheses and research streams that arise in various disciplines and at the intraindividual, intra-organizational and extra-organizational levels of analysis; and suggest new
research. Through using sensory formation as a unifying underlying mechanism, the suggested
conceptualization illustrates how individuals find meaningfulness through work and, ultimately,
when and why workers perceive CSR in a specific way, which results in more or less positive
results for themselves, their organizations and existing stakeholders. Proposed model may also
be used in other research areas that would benefit from (a) putting people in the center stage and
their quest for meaningfulness, and (b) concentrating on the role that same-level and cross-level
interactions play in the cycle between intra-individual, interpersonal-organizational, and extraorganizational sensing factors
