Clearly, the vast majority of workers are concerned about environmental issues and I think a growing number of employers feel the same way
Shelton, CT (PRWEB) June 17, 2008
Asked to characterize how important it is that their employers engage in green initiatives, 86 percent of full-time workers said that it is either "very important" or "important," according to a recent poll by LifeCare®, Inc., provider of comprehensive specialty care services and a longtime leader in the work/life industry.
Here are the full results of the poll, conducted throughout the month of May on LifeCare's private web site among employees of its 1,500 client organizations:
How important is it to you that your employer engages in environmental or green initiatives and is able to provide you resources and information in this area?
- Very important – 58%
- Important – 28%
- Not that important – 9%
- Not important at all – 5%
"Clearly, the vast majority of workers are concerned about environmental issues and I think a growing number of employers feel the same way," said LifeCare CEO Peter G. Burki. "The challenge for employers, of course, is to launch the most effective -- and cost-effective -- green initiatives, especially during challenging economic times like these. But there's no denying that employers of choice and those wanting to attract the best workers will be going green more and more."
Each month, LifeCare posts a poll on its private web site, asking individuals to share their thoughts and opinions on the latest issues and work/life trends. Past polls have addressed topics such as stress, health and wellness, aging, flexible work arrangements, and barriers to on-the-job productivity.
