I was talking to my younger brother about our experiences in the workforce and what we care about when applying for jobs. He just turned 25, part of the famous Gen Z, and although he cares about the highest paying jobs, he also prioritizes companies with proven track records in social commitments. This conversation got me thinking, we spend most of our awake time at work, so of course we care about more than just pay. I've always prioritized working for companies where I can help people. Now as a mom, working for companies that allow me to be present in my kids' life is just as important as being able to help people. What's important to you in a job? What makes you excited about a job opportunity besides the actual job?
💖 Pay, that has always been most important to pay the bills
💯 Active actions towards beneficial social causes
👏🏽 Commitment to employee wellness, physical and mental
