Ergun, Selcan
The aim of this research is to examine the mediating role of innovation climate on the relationship between corporate social responsibility and organizational commitment in a public sport organization in Turkey. In addition, the intermediary relationship of the sub-dimension of supporting innovation, preventing innovation, and providing resources between employees' corporate social responsibility and organizational commitment was examined. A questionnaire was applied to a sample of 486 randomly selected employees in a public sport organization in Turkey. The data collection tools used for this research were the Innovation Climate Scale developed by Scott and Bruce (1994), the Turkish adaptation of Sönmez et al. (2017), the Corporate Social Responsibility Scale developed by Türker (2008), the Organizational Commitment Scale developed by Meyer, Allen and Smith (1993) . After the relevant assignments were made, factor and reliability analysis were performed. Normality assumptions were checked before proceeding to the analyses. These assumptions were provided by comparing the statistical values of Kolmogorov-Smirnov and Shapiro Wilk, respectively, skewness and kurtosis values, coefficient of variation and interpretation of the q-q plot graphs. By establishing the relevant regression model, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to determine whether the mediator variable effect differs according to the years of service, and the differentiation according to gender was examined by the independent sample t test. The direction and effect of the relationship between corporate social responsibility, innovation climate and organizational commitment were examined by Pearson correlation analysis. A striking point as a result of the survey study is that the corporate social responsibility level of men is higher than that of female participants. According to both previous studies and the results of this research, when the innovation climate is examined one by one on corporate social responsibility and organizational commitment, it is seen that it has a positive effect. The success of the organizational development and change efforts aimed at the public sport organization requires an innovative climate. For this reason, studies should be carried out to create an innovation climate in public sport organization.
