ABSTRACT
In contrast with previous studies, which have primarily looked at the dynamics and consequences of corporate citizenship at the organisational level, this paper examines the consequences for individual employees. Based on a literature review and strengthened by quotes from 22 interviews, we present a model of how corporate citizenship would affect employee engagement, high-quality connections and creative involvement. The model was tested on a sample of 347 employees in North America. Findings from regression analyses and structural equation modelling support the hypotheses that employees who perceive higher levels of corporate citizenship will report higher levels of engagement, high-quality connections and creative involvement.
