GROHE X Podcast – Sammen om bæredygtighed
Episode #4: Prof. Dr. Thomas Dohmen and Marcella Hansch on the topic of how a company's sustainable mission acts like a magnet for young professionals
Time and again the question is asked on what young graduates base their decision for a company. Is it a sustainable mission that acts like a magnet for young professionals? Or is there possibly a connection between character traits and job search preferences?
In our 4th podcast episode of Together For Sustainability, we explore questions like these. Our guest, Prof. Dr. Thomas Dohmen of the University of Bonn and Maastricht University, talks to podcast host Marcella Hansch, CEO of the everwave foundation, about his recently published study on how a company´s sustainable mission influences the pool of applicants.
Learn whether, for example, women place more value on social and sustainable issues than men and why the architecture of the office and workplace is also extremely important.
The research, which was conducted with around 1,500 master's students from the Netherlands, shows how companies could recruit young professionals more easily and why people with an altruistic and prosocial personality are particularly attracted to companies that are committed to society or climate protection.
Podcast-serien Together For Sustainability vil fokusere på samarbejder, der giver positive effekter på problemerne med klimaændringer og udnyttelsen af vores planet. For at vise, at løsningen ligger i en kollektiv indsats, vil udvalget af ekspertgæster fokusere på emner som vand, ressourcer, cirkulær økonomi og bæredygtigt byggeri.
