Corporate Social Responsibility and Age of Productivity: Upper Echelon Prospective

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • What is the relationship between corporate social responsibilities and director age? To shed light on this issue,

    we examine whether and how positive and negative corporate social responsibility (CSR) events relate to the

    directors’ age in Asian emerging economies. By using the upper echelon hypothetical perspective of Hambrick

    and Mason (1984), we found that the demographic characteristics of top management teams particularly

    director age having a significant relationship with corporate social responsibilities. Demographic characteristics

    of directors are an important way to measure individuals' cognitive bases; cognitive bases in turn combine to

    create certain team abilities and tendencies, resulting in patterns in board decision outcomes.
