Abstract

Although companies are increasingly adopting volunteering programs as a form of corporate social responsibility, studies are lacking on the antecedents, consequences, and contingencies of employee participation in corporate volunteering programs. In response, we explore the questions of why some employees actively volunteer in corporate volunteering programs while others do not and how and when employees’ corporate volunteering engagement influence their organizational outcomes. Using a three-wave cross-lagged panel design with a sample from a large chain store, we found the reciprocal relationship between organizational identification and participation in corporate volunteering programs. Furthermore, our results showed that a sense of pressure to participate in corporate volunteerism weakened the positive effect of corporate volunteerism participation on organizational identification, and work outcomes including job performance and organizational citizenship behaviors. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
