For years, companies have sought to create compelling workplace cultures for employees with inspiring recognition and rewards programs. According to a study recently published by PwC, a staggering 86% of employees prefer to support or work for companies that care about the same issues they do. We are now seeing that employees increasingly prioritize working for companies that align with their values and take action on sustainability.
Three out of four employees now feel that their companies ought to shoulder responsibility for their broader impact on the world. In fact, close to half of all employees assert that they would willingly resign from their jobs if the values of the company did not align with theirs.
Heard of “Conscious Quitting“? More than a buzzword, “conscious quitting” is a powerful moral movement fastly captivating the hearts and minds of Gen Z. It describes the phenomenon where employees are courageously leaving their jobs to instead work for organizations that more faithfully align with their environmental and social values.
Paul Polman, the esteemed former CEO of Unilever, profoundly encapsulates this transformative shift by declaring: “Forget bean bags and gym memberships. Employees want strong values and positive impact.”
Unlocking the True Power of Employee Engagement Platforms
The prevailing trend in today’s employee engagement platforms involves offering vouchers or gift cards that can be redeemed for various retail, wellness, transportation, or dining experiences.
There’s a very clear gap in the market when it comes to fulfilling the desires of purpose-driven employees who yearn to make a positive impact for people and the planet. Companies are eager to embrace the ethos of the Regenerative Economy, and this includes the realm of gifting and voucher platforms – a powerful aspect of company culture.
Though there are gifting and voucher platforms that recognize this gap and strive to expand their offerings to encompass positive impact, the options currently available are limited to one-time, opaque donations to NGOs, leaving much to be desired.
