Working for the Earth: Green Companies and Green Jobs Attract Employees

Results from the survey show that a surprising percentage of young workers want employment with a green company: 80 percent of those surveyed said they are interested in a job that has a positive impact on the environment and a whopping 92 percent would chose working for an environmentally friendly company.

Other research shows employees working at companies with clear corporate responsibility (CSR) programs, including environmental and social programs, are most satisfied. Employees at these companies also stay at their jobs longer and are more content with senior management then their peers at companies with lackluster CSR programs according to a recent survey by Kenexa Research Institute (KRI).
