Abstract

Knowing the employees' perspective is fundamental to align a good Human Resources Management. To this end, it was sought to verify whether the employees of portuguese organizations perceive the presence of management practices aligned to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and whether these impact on Organizational Performance. The methodological design adopted is characterized as a descriptive and quantitative study.  By the multiple regression analysis, it is emphasized that the factor with the greatest positive impact on the perception of organizational performance in providing health and safety in the workplace were the socially responsible economic-financial management practices (β=0,327) and the organization's business strategies aligned to Social Responsibility (β=0,277). Among the practices impacting on the organization's interaction and commitment to the community, one can emphasize the brand promotion strategies aligned to CSR principles (β=0,305) and, again, the business strategies of the organization aligned to Social Responsibility (β=0,266).
