The study’s participants, which included an equal mix of knowledge workers, business leaders and HR leaders, shared clear expectations—and consequences—for employers:

  • 8 in 10 survey respondents overall say it’s important that their company’s values align with their own — but only 57% of knowledge workers say they actually do align
  • More than half (52%) of knowledge workers are likely to quit their job if company values do not align with their own
  • Only 1 in 4 knowledge workers are likely to accept a job if company values do not align with their own 
  • More than 3 in 4 of all respondents expect their employer (76%) and business in general (77%) to be a force for good in society
  • That force-for-good expectation extends across demographic groups: Over 70% of all respondents from nearly every age group, region, company size, and demographic group say business in general and their employer in particular have an obligation to be a force for good in society
