Abstract: This paper endeavors to assess the overall level of employees’ perception of corporate sustainable development (CSD) across its three defining dimensions – economic, social, and environmental. Variations in the perceived significance based on individual and professional characteristics among employees are additionally identified. The research methodology involves conducting Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) based on the information collected from a survey distributed to employees of companies operating in the information and communication technology (ICT) sector within Romania’s Western region. The findings affirm a direct, restrictive and positive impact of employees’ socio-professional characteristics on their perception of CSD.

Keywords: corporate sustainable development; employees’ perception; economic, social and environmental dimensions; structural equation modeling
