Based on the institutional theory and organizational culture perspectives, this paper presents a research framework which argues that the impact of institutional pressures from buyers, competitors, and regulators on social compliance of suppliers is moderated by supplier’s organizational culture. The paper categorizes institutional pressures into normative, mimetic, and coercive pressures and defines organizational culture as a function of external focus and flexibility. An appropriate organizational culture reinforces the impact of an institutional pressure on supplier’s social compliance. Previous research provides the backdrop for developing a research questionnaire to collects data from suppliers of international companies in Pakistan to test the research framework.
