Company scandals have been filling the headlines lately. As a result, jobseekers are more concerned about a company’s values. They want to work for an employer that aligns with what they believe is just and right.
In February, my company, StartMonday, conducted a survey of 750 employees in the retail and hospitality industries. We found that 36% of candidates feel a company’s reputation is important when deciding where to work. So, during the hiring process, they look for signs that a company might let them down on a moral or ethical level.
