Abstract

Business ethics and corporate social responsibility (CSR) have always attracted the attention of businesses,consuming public, government and other stakeholders. The purpose of this study was to explore the role of business ethics and social responsibility among Malaysian managers in relation to the adoption of ISO 26000 – Social Responsibility. This empirical study used a PRESOR instrument and has drawn from the development of ISO 26000 and its principles, core subjects and social responsibility initiatives. It was found that Malaysian managers subscribe positively to the importance of PRESOR and they are supportive of ISO 26000 principles and core subjects that but were still lacking in the knowledge and experiences of using appropriate social responsibility initiatives and tools to implement social responsibility at their workplaces. This research paper is limited to the linkages and synergies between business ethics, social responsibility and ISO 26000. However, as ISO 26000 is a global initiative, this research provides a view as one of the most significant initiatives in recent years. The implication of this research enhanced the social responsibility practitioners and corporate leaders about the recent developments in social responsibility and ISO 26000. The originality of the research investigated the relationship of PRESOR and ISO 26000 – Social Responsibility. By doing so, key areas are now offered that practitioners and academics should further explore in order to demonstrate the contribution to the body of knowledge on business ethics and social responsibility and ISO 26000 – Social Responsibility.
