Abstract: In this study, we examine the role played by job satisfaction in the context of the indirect effect of co-workers' support on eco-helping through commitment to colleagues and helping behaviors. Using a convenience sample (N=188), our study supports our hypotheses. In accordance with our expectations, the findings from long mediation process analysis indicate that commitment to colleagues and helping behaviors fully mediate the indirect effect of perceived co-workers' support on eco-helping. The results from the fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis (fsQCA) show that job satisfaction is a sufficient condition in the absence of mutual exchange among colleagues. The article ends with contributions on the link between helping others with technical problems and eco-friendly behaviors. Implications notably concern the importance of mutual exchanges in promoting eco-friendly changes. Future research suggests replicating the tested model within a context of manager-subordinate interaction.
