Given this investment of time, it comes as little surprise that we increasingly want our working lives to reflect the values and beliefs we hold outside of work hours.

In 2003, a survey by online recruitment agency found that 43% of jobseekers would not work for a company that did not have environmental or ethical policies. Further research in 2004 by the global accounting firm Ernst & Young showed 89% of graduates considered high ethical standards to be 'imperative' when deciding whether to join a company."
