Several studies have assessed the different dimensions of corporate social responsibility (CSR), literatures have been emerging in studying the impact of CSR in different sectors. Few are looking at its effect inside the organization, such as its effects on the workers. Therefore this research aims to investigate the dimensions of CSR within the mining sector and its effect on the organizational commitment. The proposed model was tested on a sample of 415 employees within the mining sector of the Democratic Republic of CONGO. Statics techniques and tools were used in this research such as a linear regression model in determining the linear relationship between the dimensions of CSR and the commitment, regression path analysis using Lisrel to show the strength of the relationship. The findings revealed that 3 dimensions of CSR (economic, legal and environmental) were significant predictors of organizational commitment. Management within the mining sector of DRC, ought to recognize the fact that workers who perceive good social responsibility of their organizations, develop emotional attachment and sense of obligation to their organization and are most likely to be committed to the organization, workers had neutral perceptions about the Philanthropic activities of the mining firms and this dimension was insignificant.
