This study examined the relationship between corporate social responsibility (CSR), job satisfaction, and stress. Specifically, job satisfaction was hypothesized to act as a mediator between CSR and stress. For the purpose of this study, corporate volunteerism was used as the specific type of CSR assessed. To complete this study, 178 participants were recruited from Amazon Mechanical Turk. Each participant filled out a satisfaction, stress, and volunteerism questionnaire. Support for the hypotheses was mixed. Volunteerism and stress did not have a significant relationship with each other, which meant that job satisfaction did not act as a mediator between the two. However, job satisfaction did have a significant, positive relationship with volunteerism. Job satisfaction and stress were also found to be positively related. Although some hypotheses were not supported, the findings of this study do provide valuable insight into the relationship between volunteerism, satisfaction, and stress. Important implications for practitioners are also discussed.
