"Green" a Poor Job Draw

April 11, 2007 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - Americans may be talking more about the environment, but it's not the kind of "green" that seems to be a factor in choosing a job.

The latest Adecco USA Workplace Insights Survey found that only a third (33%) of surveyed workers would be more inclined to work for a “green” company, despite growing media coverage of environmental issues.

About half (52%) of employed adults think their company should do more to be environmentally friendly, but about 1 in 5 (22%) say their company already does enough – or too much, while about one in four (26%) are just not sure.

While about 7 in 10 employed adults (69%) know that their company has an environmental policy, only about a third (32%) knows what that policy is. However, employed men are somewhat more likely than their female counterparts to say they know their company’s environmental policy (35% men vs. 28% women).

By the way, April 22 is Earth Day .

This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Interactive on behalf of Adecco USA between March 13 and March 15, 2007 among 2,473 U.S. adults 18 years of age or older.
