heal.abstract
The research studies and measures the impact of several factors on purchase intentions of CSR-based telecommunication products/services in Slovakia. To be more specific, it investigates whether the purchase intentions are affected by the four variables, namely CSR awareness, trust of CSR, availability of information about CSR in Slovakia and willingness to pay premium price for CSR-based products/services. A quantitative survey launched electronically and questionnaires examined Slovak consumers’ purchase intentions of products/services produced by socially responsible companies. The purchase intentions were mainly influenced by CSR awareness and the willingness to pay premium price if the price increase is perceives as justifiable. On the other hand, the availability of information about CSR initiatives in Slovakia and the consumers` trust were not significant, therefore are not the direct influencers of purchase intentions of CSR-based products/service.
