The United States was founded on the idea that its elected officials are the voice of the people; however, dissatisfied with the polarized political divisiveness and the near gridlock in Congress, the people are looking towards other forms of representation — their employers. It has become increasingly common for employees to urge, if not demand, their employers stand up for them, take action, and help create change on their behalf. Many companies — motivated by their current workforce’s pleas and their desire to attract the best and brightest workforce — have accordingly prioritized aligning their social activism and corporate responsibility stances.
