Sammanfattning: Corporate Social Responsibility has become an increasingly important aspect for companiesto consider. Partly because it attracts customers and investors, and partly because societyplaces higher demands on companies to act as good citizens. Research has shown that anadditional effect of CSR work is that it can create a positive attitude among employees.Employees’ motivation to work can depend on a number of different factors, such as beingable to participate in and contribute to the decision-making process. The purpose of the studyis to investigate the relationship between organizations’ CSR work and employees’ workmotivation. Furthermore, the study looks into how the employees’ work motivation isaffected by the opportunity to influence the CSR work. The survey is a qualitative case studyof the organization Husqvarna and its results are based on interviews with employees and ananalysis of the company's documents. Its theoretical framework consists of George Homans’social exchange theory, Anthony Giddens’ structuration theory and Pinder and Lathamsmotivational framework. The results of the study show that CSR policies can contribute towork motivation. However, employees’ personal opinions of CSR work in general are ofgreat importance for how they value CSR policies. Moreover, the results suggest that theopportunity to participate in the CSR work is a motivating factor for most employees, eventhough organizational hierarchy and lack of time were described as obstacles. The studyreflects on whether these obstacles are what make some employees indifferent to CSR work.
