Further, when it comes to personal involvement in their communities and social causes, a significant minority indicates that they are willing to be actively involved; many more feel that any involvement shouldn't be obligatory.

The Do Well Do Good Public Opinion Survey on Cause MarketingTwo years ago, the world was in turmoil. The foundations of the global economy nearly collapsed as banks were afraid to lend to each other. Companies began shedding workers swelling unemployment to their greatest length in decades. And then the worst was over and we find ourselves in a shaky postrecession economy. In some circles, the cultural excess that drove our economy to its knees has been shunned. Austerity is now no longer looked down upon – one would hope at least. It is in this postcrisis context that we at Do Well Do Good, LLC conducted our first public opinion survey on causemarketing and corporate social responsibility. What do American consumers expect of the companies they buy from? How do employees view their company’s responsibility to society and the environment? Our intent with these surveys is to look deeper than surface-level feelings and to identify the extent consumers and employees say they would change their behavior. Get White Paper
