Corporate social responsibility remains a priority for many businesses, and research has shown that employees want the corporate entities they work for to take a stand on societal issues.
Recent research from Povaddo suggests that 57% of surveyed employees feel corporate America needs to play a more active role in social issues. A majority (62%) would also be more likely to recommend the company as a place to work if its CEO makes a real effort to make a difference.
The other 43% feel that Corporate America needs to strictly confine its activities to being financially prosperous and providing employment.
