Frederick, Maryland – April 14, 2020 – Recruitment marketing leader iHire urges employers to embrace core values as they navigate uncertain times. According to the company’s 2020 Core Values in the Workplace Survey, more than 60% of employers have a set of core values; however, nearly 16% of employees don’t believe their company truly follows and upholds them.
Defined as a set of principles or fundamental beliefs that guide a company and its people toward a common mission or goal, core values serve as a foundation for everything an organization does, according to iHire. Adhering to these principles is especially important when making critical business decisions, handling crises, and adjusting to unfamiliar social and economic situations – like the COVID-19 pandemic.
Key findings from iHire’s 2020 Core Values in the Workplace survey include:
“Now more than ever, employers must turn to core values to weather one of the most challenging business climates we’ve experienced in history,” said Steve Flook, iHire’s President and CEO. “Although just shy of 16% of employees don’t believe their employer upholds their core values, this is a significant number. As a company’s foundation, core values must be a living, breathing part of your organization. iHire encourages all employers to examine their core values – or establish a set if they do not have one already – to help them make the best possible decisions and find some solace during these challenging times.”
