Abstract
Corporate social responsibility provides psychological empowerment for employees leading to higher productivity. Employees are more committed when they are trained and developed on the job and have skills and ability for performance. Organizations perform better and more sustainable when they discharge their corporate social responsibility to their environment because no business operates in isolation of the internal and external environments. The exploratory research design was used for the study and the result showed positive correlation between the variables of study. The study was not exhaustive, therefore, further study could examine the relationship between corporate social responsibility and high rate of employee turnover in the banking sector. It was suggested that training and development should be seen by employers as a part of strategic plan for performance and not as a Christmas gift to employees.
