For Consumers, CSR Is Now More Important Than Price
A new survey finds that the social stances a company takes now influence buying decisions more than price. Seventy-one percent think it’s important for businesses to take a stance on social movements, such as gender equity, gun control, the environment, immigration, and human rights. Further, three-quarters of those surveyed are likely to start shopping at a company that supports an issue they agree with. These and more figures are from a report by Clutch, a Washington D.C., research and consulting firm. The numbers confirm that more consumers are looking to business to fill the purpose gap left vacant by a dysfunctional political system.
