    Corporate Social and Financial Performance: An Extended Stakeholder Theory, and Empirical Test with Accounting Measures. [REVIEW]Gerwin Van der Laan, Hans Van Ees & Arjen Van Witteloostuijn - 2008 - Journal of Business Ethics 79 (3):299-310.
    Although agreement on the positive sign of the relationship between corporate social and financial performance is observed in the literature, the mechanisms that constitute this relationship are not yet well-known. We address this issue by extending management’s stakeholder theory by adding insights from psychology’s prospect decision theory and sociology’s resource dependence theory. Empirically, we analyze an extensive panel dataset, including information on disaggregated measures of social performance for the S&P 500 in the 1997–2002 period. In so doing, we enrich the (...)

    The Shareholder–Manager Relationship and Its Impact on the Likelihood of Firm Bribery.Dendi Ramdani & Arjen van Witteloostuijn - 2012 - Journal of Business Ethics 108 (4):495-507.
    We examine the impact on firm bribery of two corporate governance devices heavily studied in corporate governance research—i.e., separation of ownership and control, and equity share of the largest shareholder.

From agency theory, we predict that firms with the owner also acting as a manager (owner–manager) are more likely to engage in bribery compared to their counterparts with separation of ownership and control. We argue that an increase (...)

    Adherence to Societal Norms: The Case of the Dutch Corporate Governance Code.Gerwin vad der Laan, Hans van Ees & Arjen van Witteloostuijn - 2007 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 18:363-367.
    We develop a theory of compliance with corporate governance codes by combining insights from agency, network and reputation theories. Subsequently, we test this theory using a unique dataset with fine-grained compliance information for the book year 2004 as to 130 Dutch stock-listed corporations. We find partial support for our theory.
