 It’s Critical to Showcase Your Purpose Beyond Profits and Commitment to Putting Employees First

Win the War for Talent While Creating a Culture of Sustainability

Almost nine in ten (87 percent) Millennials believe that “the success of a business should be measured in terms of more than just its financial performance.”

Millennials believe businesses are behaving in an increasingly responsible manner yet the majorities (54 percent) believe businesses around the world have “no ambition beyond making money.”

Those likely to remain longest share their organization’s values, and are more satisfied with its sense of purpose and support of professional development.

Personal values and morals have the greatest influence on Millennials’ decision making.

Millennials believe that putting employees first is the number one most important value a business should follow if it is to have long-term success.

Is Your Purpose Beyond Profits Integrated into Talent Retention and Attraction?

Help your employees find meaning in their work as they help you change the world by presenting a series of Sustainable Living Events throughout the year. Engage with your employees around purpose and share videos and testimonials to bring your purpose to life and attract valuable talent.

Sustainability is rapidly becoming an integral part of everyday business and a fundamental part of corporate missions. Companies around the globe are demonstrating environmental and social responsibility through employee engagement and practices which, in turn, attract and help retain great employees, customers and profits. This goes beyond “green” to include community investment programs, volunteerism and helping to sustain our planet, people and resources.

This simple act of taking a full lunch break can improve how employees feel about their work and their company. The study reveals something managers and companies can start doing tomorrow to make a positive impact on employee engagement.” Source: Tork’s press room.
