Over half (59 percent) of UK workers believe their business should invest in charitable initiatives.
This statistic comes from Qualtrics, an experience management company, which recently carried out a survey of 500 UK UK employees.
The study aimed to find out employees’ views on workplace initiatives and the importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR).
It found those aged between 18 and 29 were most likely to think their employer should invest in CSR, with 67 percent feeling this way compared to 48 percent of those aged 50 and above.
With brands around the world launching corporate initiatives to help fight COVID-19, the findings show that almost half (48 percent) of workers are likely to feel more engaged at work where charitable initiatives are in place.
Again, this is more prevalent in younger workers, with over half (55 percent) of those aged between 18 and 29 agreeing that CSR programmes help them to feel more engaged with their work, compared to just over a third (38 percent) of those aged 50-plus.
