Abstract

As an important factor, the pay gap within the top management affects the behavior of the executives and the social responsibility decision-making of the enterprise. In order to study the impact of the pay gap within senior executives on the performance of Corporate social responsibility, this research selected non-financial a-share listed company in Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Exchange from 2010 to 2019 as sample. And constructed a fixed effect multivariate regression model, which including dummies of year and industry, and using robust standard error at the same time. It is found that there is a significant positive correlation between the pay gap within executives and CSR performance. Two tests of changing the model variables show that the conclusion is still robust. Then, by further analyzing sample data with the stepwise fixed-effect regression models constructed in this study, it is found that the pay gap among senior managers can promote the fulfillment of corporate social responsibility partially through improving the quality of internal control.
