A Buyer’s Market For The Unemployed? Nearly three-quarters of Americans (69%) would rather be unemployed than work for a company that has a bad reputation, according to a recent study by Corporate Responsibility and Allegis Group Services.

 

The study, which took the pulse of more than 1,000 employed and unemployed Americans, revealed that reputation and transparency could impact job decisions.

 

The study also included these findings:

 

• More than half (62%) of the employed respondents said they would take a job with a company that had a bad reputation if offered a higher salary.

• The majority of respondents who said they would make that move indicated that a 50% to 100% salary increase would be necessary.

• A large majority (84%) of respondents said they would leave their current job if they were offered a new position at a company with a stellar reputation. And most of those respondents would only require a 1% to 10% increase in salary to make the jump.
