Businesses Supporting Charities Get Ahead In Recruitment
Research commissioned by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) shows that 1 in 4 people are more likely to apply for jobs in companies which give back.
According to recruitment firms, Monday 9th January is ‘Massive Monday’ and will see the number of new job applications peak as people begin the hunt for a new career in 2017.
Polling carried out by YouGov on behalf of CAF suggests that companies which actively support charities are likely to be at an advantage when it comes to recruitment. It finds that many people believe that charitable companies make better employers, and that supporting good causes helps to boost morale among existing staff.
The online poll of 1,041 people carried out between 16th and 22nd December finds that just over one in four people (26 per cent) agree that, when applying for a new job, they would be more inclined to work for an employer with a good track record supporting charities and good causes.
