無形的資產對企業來說,最常被提及的就是聲譽以及形象,在企業聲譽的部份;天下雜誌每一年都會定期進行企業聲望的調查,其中包含的評比項目主要經營的績效,聲望的高低影響了企業在大眾心目中的形象;由於經濟的發展,加上企業的國際化腳步,企業在決策上所牽涉的利害團體也越來越廣大,企業在進行決策,尤其是牽涉到公共議題時,思考的深度及廣度將不僅是企業本身的利益,更多的考量例如企業道德、守法性及管理手法都會影響到企業的形象,也就是企業組織需要對所存在的社會負起相當的責任,這就是企業公民的表現(Maignan and Ferrell, 2000)。

Results show that corporate citizenship image positively influence organizational attractiveness and there is a significance between high and low corporate citizenship image groups in reputation and organizational attractiveness.
