Rychliková, Monika ; Šťovíčková Jantulová, Magdaléna (advisor) ; Muhič Dizdarevič, Selma (referee)
This Master's thesis focuses on accountability, which is understood as a relation between an actor and an external forum. The actor is accountable to the forum which means the actor must explain and justify their actions. This thesis regards as actors civil society organizations that provide social services. The thesis explores what forms of accountability are employed in annual reports of civil society organisations that provide social services during Petr Nečas' government and using which discourses. The era of Petr Nečas' government is considered to be an era of neoliberal reforms. The method used in this thesis is Critical Discourse Analysis by Norman Fairclough. The thesis identifies bureaucratic discourse as the dominant and discourse of civil society as the minority. Being accountable through beraucratic discourse serves for legitimizing an organisation. Civil society discourse reflects and forms identities of organizations.

Přibylová, Lucie ; Legnerová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Muhič Dizdarevič, Selma (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with employees' motivation to participate in corporate volunteering, which is an integral part of civil society and each company's corporate social responsibility. Corporate volunteering is on the rise, but not every company perceives it with all the aspects that it could bring to it, its employees and society. I put into the context not only corporate volunteering, but also employee / volunteer motivation. In the research I found out the main and most frequent motivation of employees of three selected companies to participate in corporate volunteering, which I then compared with each other. Thanks to the research, I suggested to companies how they could improve corporate volunteering programs for their employees so the employees have more interest and credibility. Recommendations can be an inspiration for other companies that would like to start with corporate volunteering or promote it more in their company.
