Take a close look at business around the world, and you’ll find that companies are increasingly being called to account by workers concerned about corporate behavior. That’s the finding of a recent Ipsos survey of 18,000 workers in 24 nations.  The percentages of those who said it was “very important” for employers to be responsible to society and the environment ranged from 32 percent in the U.S. and 37 percent in Canada to 30 percent in the U.K. Interestingly, workers in emerging countries reported even more concern. Over one-half of those surveyed in Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia, and India checked the “very important” box. Overall, 61 per cent of all respondents thought companies should pay more attention to the environment, and 52 per cent said they should contribute more to society. According to the poll results, workers say that companies must prioritize workplace safety, contribute to the socioeconomic development of the country, and abide by local laws and rights. Those surveyed in western democracies consider these efforts to be governmental work, but in the developing world, workers look to multinational companies to achieve them because their governments are less able. The Ipsos poll is the latest message to global corporations that their power and their profits increasingly depend on strategies that contribute to the greater good.
