Companies which support good causes are at a recruitment advantage

One in four people say they like to work for companies that support good causes

New recruitment research commissioned by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) has revealed that one in four people are more inclined to apply for jobs with companies that have a strong track record of supporting charities.

The online poll of 1,041 people also discovered that many people believe that charitable companies make better employers, and that supporting good causes helps to boost morale amongst staff.

Women (30 per cent) and people at the start of their career, aged 16 – 24, (47 per cent) are most likely to be influenced by a potential employers’ charitable activity. Two in five (39 per cent) people agree that businesses and organisations that support good causes make for better employers. Almost half (45 per cent) of people say that supporting charities and good causes helps to improve morale in the workplace.

Nearly half of people surveyed agreed that giving staff time off to volunteer is a popular way for businesses to help support good causes.  In 2015 the Conservative Party’s General Election manifesto pledged to introduce three days paid volunteering leave.

CAF helps people and businesses give to causes they care about, providing services such as the payroll giving scheme Give As You Earn. It works with more than 2,500 UK companies on their charitable giving including the majority of the FTSE 100.

Head of research at CAF, Susan Pinkney, says, “There are many good reasons for companies to be active and vocal in their support of good causes – not least the valuable contribution they can make to tackling social issues and making the world a better place. In the competitive world of recruitment, it can also give firms a real advantage in attracting new talent while retaining existing staff.  We know that there is huge appetite among businesses to work with charities.”

  1. I am surprised to know that one in four interview applicant are more motivated to apply for jobs with companies which have a strong track record of supporting charities, social activities or noble causes and we have to be thankful of Charities Aid Foundation which is an organization where the team has devoted their life for to help people and businesses give to reasons on which they care about. Additionally providing services for instance the payroll giving scheme Give as You Earn and help donations to grow well. At Quality Dissertation, I am an academic writer and mainly focusing on assignment of business environment help for students with the expert team of writers, And I would love to if my organization will also do such kind of supporting charities for students who could not afford their study wages as well as need extra special educational help. I will sure share this awesome work and discuss with the team to inspire them.

    • That incredible research about the employees’ views about recruitment, but I don’t think so “charitable companies make better employers” because there are many other niches work that can make better employees, It depends on the employer how responsible and loyal with his or her job.
      I am also a private employee where I provide Thesis Service to the college and university students, I am sincere with my job and think that I am can be a better employee for other firms.

  2. The information you shared is incredibly useful while working with charitable organization people gain experience but don’t have a degree or certificate so while switching the job they have to face difficulties and prefer to buy non-fake college degrees.

  3. The assignment helpers of StudentsAssignmentHelp.com will provide you the top quality expert assignment help and deliver all your assignments before the specified time. Give us a chance to eliminate all your worries.

  4. The students interested in learning marketing take up this field as their specialization and learn both the traditional as well as contemporary tools of marketing.
