Ethical leadership and corporate social responsibility: the mediating role of the ethical climate and work ethics

Project: Research/Creation Project

Project Details


The objectives of this research are directed to identify the effect that ethical leadership has on corporate social responsibility and to examine whether the ethical climate and the work ethic of employees play a mediating role in the relationship between these variables. The study is of a predictive explanatory nature and the cross-sectional non-experimental design, with a non-probabilistic sample of workers from companies from different sectors of production. The participants will respond to standardized instruments and adapted to the population, which will allow evaluating the perceptions they have of each of the variables studied. The analysis of the data will be carried out with descriptive, correlational and multivariate statistical techniques, including structural models in order to verify causal sequences between the observed variables and establish the probable mediating effect of the ethical climate and work ethic variables in the relationship between ethical leadership and corporate social responsibility. The main expected result is the validation of the proposed conceptual model. With the findings of the study, it is expected to contribute to the understanding of the relationships and the individual, relational and contextual ethical determinants involved in the development of corporate social responsibility.
