Intention vs Reality

We have all seen the various statistics about the intentions of millennials. The one that fascinates me is that over half have said that they would leave a job if the organisation didn’t have a positive impact on communities.

I’ve written before about how this view isn’t restricted to millennials, however, the thing that really stands out for me about these figures is that we never see what the rate is for people who actually change their job for this reason.

Intentions are great but faced with student loans, mortgages, families as well as career – how many people have the ability to make the change? Do we have the flexibility and opportunity to follow through or is there a significant pool of people who are disengaged with their employer, wanting to change but unable to do so?

If we can find opportunities for this pool, think of the resource we would free up to do good!
