Abstract

This study translated a corporate social responsibility orientations scale (E-CSRO), a measurement scale that assesses individuals’ orientation toward corporate social responsibility, into Chinese (C-CSRO). A convenience sample of Chinese business students (N = 793) was recruited and randomly halved. Reliability and correlational statistics, exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis suggested C-CSRO’s basic factor structure and construct interrelatedness are convergent with those of E-CSRO. Future researchers should cross-validate C-CSRO with different student groups and other Chinese communities. Copyright © 2017 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
