Abstract

The works on corporate social responsibility (CSR) have grown significantly at the international level over the last ten years.The multiple crises of our social models have led scholars to wonder about the alternative ways of regulating capitalism and, in so doing, to make CSR a strong and useful research area – including in public opinion. This is particularly the case in human resources management and more recently in personnel economics where the question of the role of CSR in the management of the employment relationship practices is increasingly debated. However, little attention is paid to the critical analysis of CSR applied to the internal organization of the firm, which is often based on ambiguous practices that reveal some forms of manipulation of employees at work. In this article, we will defend this thesis from both an analysis of the scientific literature on the subject and a comparative study of corporate codes of conduct.
