Abstract: This study explores Singapore’s Corporate Volunteerism (CV) industry by identifying the relationship between three stakeholders: corporations, corporate volunteers (CVols) and social service organizations & service users (SSOs) through their differing motivations and interests in one-day/ad hoc CV. A total of 14 respondents were interviewed and results have concluded that although “Asian/Singaporean” values are increasingly irrelevant in current society, communitarian values such as social solidarity still remain in the minds of Singaporeans and can be promoted by volunteerism – CV. It is also identified that CV, though providing several benefits to stakeholders, possess a degree of negative impacts towards SSOs and service users, which challenges the existing notion of CV as an altruistic activity. This induces sociological issues such as exploitation, commodification and suppression of the less- privileged, creating an unbalanced relationship between stakeholders. CV is therefore concluded as an important microcosm in Singapore society.
