Objectives: To investigate the influence of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and organizational culture on cooperative labor-management relations and job satisfaction by targeting small and medium-sized firms within the Seoul and Gyeonggi Province area. Methods/Statistical Analysis: A survey was carried out targeting the employees of small and mediumsized firms within the Seoul and Gyeonggi Province area. 203 questionnaires were collected from 161 firms, and among the 203, questionnaires from firms of less than 10 employees or more than 300 employees were excluded since they did not match the purpose of this study. Furthermore, questionnaires of insincere answers were excluded, and statistical analysis was carried out with 128 questionnaires utilizing SPSS20.0 and AMOS 23.0. Findings: Based on precedent studies, the concepts and dimensions of each factor were investigated and utilized in the final analysis after testing the validity and reliability of measurement items. The hypothesis of this study is verified through structured equation modeling as follows. First, CSR showed a positive (+) influence on cooperative labor-management relations. Second, organizational culture showed a positive (+) influence on cooperative labor-management relations. Third, cooperative labor-management relations showed a positive (+) influence on job satisfaction. Improvements/Applications: This study suggests that CSR activities need to be carried by small and medium-sized firms in order to establish cooperative labor-management relations and improve job satisfaction.
