LOMONACO, José Fernando Bitencourt et al. Concept of social responsability of administrators and employees. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2012, vol.32, n.1, pp. 220-233. ISSN 1414-9893. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-98932012000100016.
This research evaluated the conception of social responsibility of employees and administrators from some companies that participate in the National Politics of Integration of the Person with Disability. The subjects were 57 people divided into two groups: employees and administrators. The group of administrators was formed by 19 professionals of human resources and the group of employees was formed by 38 professionals with disability. The subjects were asked to write associations related to social responsibility in 90 seconds. The responses were grouped in eight categories: concern about the environment, social inclusion, solidarity, respect, social compromise, positive feelings and attitudes, collectivity and other responses. The Chi-squared statistical analysis allowed the rejection of the null hypothesis with a high level of probability. It was checked that the bigger number of responses related to the concept of social responsibility was concentrated in social inclusion, positive feelings and attitudes and concern about the environment categories that, together, represented a little more than the half (52%) of the total responses. Aiming to evaluate the association degree between the administrators’ and the employees’ responses the Spearman’s rank-order correlation coefficient was calculated. The results allowed the identification of a net of concepts related to the concept of social responsibility, as it was foreseen by one of the theories of concept formation: the theoretical vision.
