The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that Gen Z will make up a third of the workforce by 2030 – and they’re bringing their ideals with them.

According to findings from Monster, 83 percent of Gen Z candidates say a company’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is important when choosing an employer. Businesses must acknowledge these ideals and adapt to reach Gen Z workers if they wish to attract, hire and retain the best talent. One way companies can do this is by offering robust CSR programs, which provide corporations a license to operate in value-driven ways.

In this HRchat episode, we hear from Sam Caplan, Vice President of Social Impact at Submittable, the social impact platform used by teams to make better decisions and maximize their CSR efforts. Sam is a tech industry leader with 20 years of experience building large-scale philanthropic programs for organizations such as the Walton Family Foundation and Walmart Foundation.

Listen as Sam discusses how CSR programs allow businesses to express and promote their values to prospective employees and customers.
