Moral Capital: It's strategic importance and measurement
Baden, Denise and Chipulu, M. (2013) Moral Capital: It's strategic importance and measurement. Strategic Management Journal (Submitted).
With the ascendancy of the notion of corporate social responsibility (CSR), the construct of moral capital is of increasing relevance to corporations and their stakeholders, for example as a means to measure some of the intangible outcomes of CSR. However, its use as a variable for research has been limited by a lack of conceptual development and lack of existing measures of moral capital. To address this lack, this paper locates moral capital within a conceptual body of literature in order to operationalize the construct. The validity of a moral capital scale is explored over five empirical studies incorporating multi-trait, multi-method validation. The Moral Capital Scale demonstrated internal consistency and construct validity, as evaluated through factor analysis, correlation with existing measures, and hypothesis testing.
