The assessment of the strategic goals of organisations calls for an holistic understanding of the entire workforce; moreso that the human capacity development is also crucial. Moreover, the influence and inter-relationships of the financial performance of organisations have been well documented by researchers, particularly with respect to the non-financial performances, such as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Internal Business Perspective (IBP), Learning and Growth Perspective (LGP). However, the influence of these components of non-financial considerations are yet to be given adequate research attentions. Furthermore, organizations’ social influence, responsibilities, and their perceptions in the operating environments on one hand have not been given the required considerations. On the other hand, the organisations’ human capacity developments have not been fully documented. This paper therefore investigates the effects of CSR of organisations, such as the Yemen’s Private Universities (PUs) and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) on the LGP. To achieve these, a structured questionnaire was administered for PUs faculties using the Partial Least Square-Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM). The results obtained showed that the CSR has a positive influence on the LGP. This implied that the CSR influences the innovative drives for the workforce of the PUs management teams, which could culminate into better financial status of the PUs and HEIs.
