Abstract

Homeworking arrangements are increasing with many office-based employees working either fully or part time from home. Despite benefits associated with homeworking, including increased flexibility, limitations include a direct impact of this work arrangement on employee engagement. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) provides a potential means to offset the limitations of homeworking and, similarly, leadership provides a means to facilitate CSR engagement. However, little is understood about CSR leadership and engagement in the homeworking context. In response, this ongoing study investigates this gap in understanding, using qualitative semi-structured interviews conducted in leisure and hospitality organisations. Through the development of a conceptual framework, we aim to better illustrate the relationship between CSR and homeworking and thus contribute to practice by identifying opportunities to improve homeworking, CSR leadership, and CSR engagement.
