Stiahnuť súbor: Implementation of Corporate Social Responsibility CSR in the Visegrad Region_ DATABASE Result of Project No_22220150.xlsx

The direct output of project no 22220150 is the DATABASE which includes outcomes of the questionnaire survey conducted in monitored countries containing sorting questions, questions regarding implementation
of CSR in the company and reporting, questions regarding the realization of selected CSR activities (environmental, social, economic), and questions regarding activities connect with the COVID-19 pandemic and conflict in Ukraine (refugee crisis).

The database represents a culmination of data collected through a questionnaire survey conducted among businesses from the Visegrád Group countries (Slovakia, Poland, Czech Republic), registered within the commercial registers of one of the examined countries.

The collected data has been processed, anonymized, and structured for analytical purposes. The variables are alphabetically arranged. Not all queried columns are present in the database due to some companies opting not to provide certain information, primarily relating to the quantification of financial expenditures. The resulting database has been formatted for further mathematical and statistical analysis. Regarding the questionnaire construction, it incorporated a combination of Likert scales and multiple-choice options, structured methodically based on previous research and expert input. The data collection phase occurred between November 2022 and November 2023, involving a stratified randomized selection of business entities. The aim was to ensure a balanced sample, consisting of 100 companies per country, across various enterprise sizes: 250 employees and above, 50-249 employees, and 0-49 employees.


This research has been supported and this database was prepared within the project "Corporate Social Responsibility in Business Practice of the Visegrad Region (Visegrad Grant no. 22220149)". The project is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from the International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.

Note: X- missing data, it must be considered that the questionaire study employed skipping logic, therefore if some data is missing it may be considered that the company does not implement the selected activity
