Aguilera, et al., (2007) use a definition of CSR which refers to “the firm’s considerations of, and response to, issues beyond the narrow economic, technical, and legal requirements of the firm to accomplish social [and environmental] benefits along with the traditional economic gains which the firm seeks (Ferreira & de Oliveira, 2014). Motivated employees feel a closer relationship with the organization they work for and hence perform (Chaudhary et al., 2015). The study has 5 Hypotheses this research is a quantitative study that is Casual, Correlational, and Descriptive and will be conducted in a company in Bulacan, a province in the Philippines with a sample population size of 80. This research will look at, effects and relationship of Employee Motivation, Corporate Social Responsibility, and Employee Relation. Data will be analyzed using Descriptive Analytics, Multiple Linear Regression Analysis, and Correlational Analysis. Based on the data CSR is positively and significantly impacts Employee Motivation. If CSR is broken down into its sub constructs of Internal and External CSR only External CSR (Local Community) significantly impacts Employee Motivation. Data analysis also shows that Employee Motivation significantly impacts Employee Retention. While the highlight of the study is the mediation, it was found out that CSR was not a significant predictor of Employee Relation when Employee Motivation was included in the model.
