Employees care about giving back and this isn’t a novel mindset in millennials, either. A report, which surveyed young adults between the ages of 13 and 25 back in 2006, found that 79 percent of those surveyed want to work for companies that are cognizant of their impact on society, companies who have a corporate philanthropy strategy. Almost 70 percent also stated they keep abreast of their employers’ social contributions.
Times are changing. Only a few years ago, most working individuals placed financial stability and benefits like health insurance and holidays at the top of their “ideal job” list. Today, however, millennials entering the workforce – and those individuals within the first decade or so of their career – are looking for more, or something else altogether.
