Abstract: Research on spillover versus compensation effects of work to non-work domains have yielded mixed findings in the human resource management (HRM) literature. In the social psychology literature, moral consistency versus moral balancing effects of an individuals’ own behavior are highly contested. In our study, we combine these theoretical lenses and argue that environmental corporate social (ir)responsibility (CSR and CSIR) may either spill over to (consistency effect) or compensate (balancing effect) for employees’ own moral behavior. In an experimental study, in which we randomly assign individuals to work for a company engaging either in CSR or CSIR, we investigate participants’ donation behavior. Our results indicate that individuals who work for a CSR compared to a CSIR company donate significantly more money to a charity that serves an environmental purpose, but not more money to a charity that serves a broader social mission.
