Latest research from flexible workspace provider Regusreveals that charity and corporate social responsibility (CSR) are a key issue for the American workforce. Workers reveal that faced between two similar job offers, they would be swayed by the company that can prove they are making a charitable contribution and giving back in some way.
Of the almost 13,341 Regus survey respondents, more than half (58%) reported it is important to them that their employer is involved in charity work. CSR is also an area of consideration when choosing a place to work. When presented with two equal jobs, 47% would give preference to the more charitable company. Businesses with a proven involvement in society are therefore better able to attract and retain top staff.
