    Unpacking Transnational Corporate Responsibility: Coordination Mechanisms and Orientations.Daniel Arenas & Silvia Ayuso - 2016 - Business Ethics: A European Review 25 (3):217-237.
    This article aims to advance the discussion of how multinational companies manage the tension between global integration and local responsiveness in their corporate social responsibility. In particular, it studies the relationships between headquarters and subsidiaries in a transnational CSR strategy and the types of coordination mechanisms used. Building on a qualitative study of a multinational bank, we find that in addition to formal and informal coordination mechanisms, a transnational CSR strategy cannot be fully understood without considering lateral learning and participatory (...)

    The Global Compact: An Analysis of the Motivations of Adoption in the Spanish Context.Jorge A. Arevalo, Deepa Aravind, Silvia Ayuso & Mercè Roca - 2013 - Business Ethics, the Environment and Responsibility 22 (1):1-15.
    In the 10 years after the launch of the United Nations Global Compact (GC), there have been very few empirical assessments of the initiative in the academic literature. In this study, drawing from institutional theory and the resource-based view of the firm, we examine motivations of business participants to adopt the GC principles in the Spanish context. Using survey data from Spain – the country reporting the highest volume of business participants in the GC – we find that external institutional (...)

    What Determines Principle-Based Standards Implementation? Reporting on Global Compact Adoption in Spanish Firms.Silvia Ayuso, Mercè Roca, Jorge A. Arevalo & Deepa Aravind - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics 133 (3):553-565.
    International Accountability Standards have proliferated in the last 20 years, with the UN Global Compact as the most widely accepted principle-based standard catalyzing voluntary participation by firms. This study aims to improve understanding about the factors that determine companies’ progress in adopting principle-based standards. Drawing on the resource-based view of the firm, we examine the direct and combined influences of different organizational resources on standard implementation as perceived by 213 Spanish GC signatories. Our results reveal that the level of firm-specific (...)

    A Cross-National Study of Corporate Governance and Employment Contracts.Roberto García-Castro, Miguel A. Ariño, Miguel A. Rodriguez & Silvia Ayuso - 2008 - Business Ethics, the Environment and Responsibility 17 (3):259–284.
    Corporate governance (CG) can be seen to operate through a 'double agency' relationship: one between the shareholders and corporate management, and another between the corporate management and the firm's employees. The CG and labour management of firms are closely related. A particularly productive way to study how CG affects and is affected by the employment relationship has been to compare CG across countries. The contributions of this paper to that literature are threefold. (1) An integration of aspects of the labour (...)
