The number of studies for Corporate Social Responsibility or known as CSR has increasingly grown in the literature. Many literatures have discussed about CSR from western point of view and also from Islamic perspective.

Both perspectives bring to the same conclusion whereby CSR gives positive impact for the society. However, there are few researches done regarding its impacts on employees’ behavior. The purpose of this study is to analyze how Islamic Corporate Social Responsibility programs which are implemented in the organization can give positive or negative impact towards employees’ behavior. Therefore, this study was conducted to determine the underlying positive impact of ICSR to Society, Environment, and Employee which will have an effect on employees’ behavior.

Therefore, organizations should consider giving priority to CSR programmes and activities which will benefit its employees. The participation of employees in CSR activities is important and this study will give better understanding on the impact of CSR programs towards employee behavior..
