Fresh research has today revealed that young Australians want to work for ethical companies and those that have a positive impact on the world.
Launched by SEEK, the Australian Charities Fund and Social Impact Hub, the research titled Young Australians; Motivations for Workplace Giving, also uncovered that young Australians are motivated by a genuine desire to make a difference and to assist causes and charities that resonate on a personal level.
Young Australians are also generally receptive to contributing through a workplace giving program (WPG), appreciating the convenience and tax advantages of these programs.
Daniel Ellis, Group Corporate Communications Director, SEEK Limited said, “We were very pleased to support this research. Younger working Australians are redefining employment in Australia and will comprise the majority of the workforce by 2030. It’s imperative that employers understand how to attract and retain this group.
