June 18 - TD Bank has released findings of its TD Bank Environmental Attitudes Survey, which found that 54 percent of Hispanic respondents consider a company's environmental stance to be very important when seeking employment, and 34 percent of respondents said they would refuse a job if they disagreed with the organization's sustainable impact.
Hispanic respondents with children were significantly more likely to evaluate an organization's environmental impact – 63 percent – and 40 percent of those with children say they would refuse a job based on environmental practices. More than 70 percent of Hispanic respondents also say it is very important that their current employer work to improve its environmental impact. The nationwide TD Bank Environmental Attitudes Survey polled more than 2,200 employed consumers of all ages, including more than 500 Hispanics, about their environmental behaviors, preferences and expectations.
"The results of our study indicate that employees hold a company's environmental commitment to a high regard," said Diana Glassman, Head of Environmental Affairs at TD Bank. "Implementing a strong and innovative environmental program is not only the right thing to do, it is an effective way to attract, inspire and retain the best and brightest employees."
Environmental Practices Matter in the Workplace
According to the survey, employees pay close attention to their employer's environmental commitment and place importance on the business' sustainable impact.
Improving Sustainability in the Home and Community
Not only does sustainability matter in the workplace, but the survey results demonstrate respondents are also interested in greening their homes and communities.
The study was conducted among a nationally representative group of consumers. The national sample size of 2,200 consumers has a margin of error of +/- 2.1 percent. The survey was hosted by global research company Angus Reid Public Opinion.
