Poll: Would a company's values be enough to compel you to change jobs?

Workers seem to care less about cash and more about culture when it comes to career choices.

WITH THE UNEMPLOYMENT rate so low, companies have to think outside the box to attract and retain workers – and it looks like money isn’t the only answer.

A recent column published on Fora suggested employees today care more about a company’s culture and values than the zeros on their payslip.

A Glassdoor survey suggested that most working adults across the US, UK, France and Germany would consider a company’s culture before applying for a job, while over half of the 5,000 respondents said company culture was more important than salary when it came to job satisfaction. 

But with the cost of living rising and other issues, like the housing crunch, affecting people’s work-life balance, some workers would gladly take a bump in pay over a company’s mission statement.

Keeping this in mind, we are asking Fora readers this week: Would a company’s values be enough to compel you to change jobs?
