The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships among employee perceived corporate social responsibility, self-efficacy and psychological contract type. Specially, this study proposes a framework that work environment and personality characteristics factors (four dimensions of corporate social responsibility and self-efficacy) were antecedents of psychological contract type. In addition, corporate social responsibility also has impacts on self-efficacy. It means psychological contract type is affected by corporate social responsibility through the mediation of self-efficacy. The research hypotheses were empirically tested using a survey of employees drawn from 30 large high-tech firms. Of the 605 questionnaires distributed to the subjects, 498 usable questionnaires were collected. This research confirms some positive influences of various dimensions of corporate social responsibility on self-efficacy and psychological contract. A unique finding is that perceived corporate social responsibility affects psychological contract directly and indirectly via the mediation of self-efficacy. The research results are as follows: 1. Transactional contract is negatively related to economic, legal and philanthropic responsibilities. Besides, relational contract is positively related to economic, legal and philanthropic responsibilities. 2. Relational contract is positively related to self-efficacy. 3. Self-efficacy is positively related to economic, legal and ethical responsibilities. 4. This results show that perceived economic, legal and ethical responsibilities affect relational contract indirectly via the mediation of self-efficacy. In other words, the empirical findings suggest that self-efficacy is a partial mediator affects corporate social responsibility such as economic and legal responsibilities, and is a full mediator between relational contract and ethical responsibility. According to the results, managerial implications and suggestions for corporate administrators are discussed.
