Abstract: This paper describes the results of survey conducted in India amongst employees of different organisations. This paper covers the perception of employees on different aspects like employee benefits, quality policy and customer orientation, societal consideration, legal compliance, ethical aspects, environment, futuristic outlook and charity initiatives. Using statistical tools the relationship of these varied aspects are studied with reference to parameters like type of organisation, size of organisation and hierarchical levels of employees. The results revealed that societal considerations, legal compliance, environment concern and futuristic outlook are significantly correlated with the type of organisation, size of organisation and hierarchical levels of employees. This indicates that larger organisations are more concerned on all these components than smaller organisations. Similarly, all the components mentioned above have been significantly correlated with hierarchical levels indicating that higher levels of employee feel that the organisations are more concerned with corporate social responsibility.
