This research project would not have been possible without the support of many people.
I would like to express my gratitude to my supervisor Miss. Nadia Abid, who offered me invaluable assistance, support and guidance.
My love and gratitude to my beloved family, my dear husband and friends; for their understanding and endless love through the duration of my studies.
This research aims at evaluating Corporate Social Responsibility in the banking sector in Tunisia and took La Société Tunisienne de Banque (STB) as a case study. This evaluation was carried out by means of a questionnaire distributed to twenty agents working in two STB branches.
What is visible through the findings is that CSR sphere receives a regular attention from STB, especially the social dimension. But remarkably, only a few employees seem to have participated in CSR environmental projects or seminars, this would either suggest a lack of employees' knowledge or a lack of CSR principles implementation.
