The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship has just released the 2013 Profile of the Professionals. This research looks at salaries, job satisfaction, professional development and the motivations of people working in corporate citizenship roles. The findings show that the nature of corporate citizenship is rapidly developing and the role of professionals and their skill set is constantly evolving

Using an online survey conducted in late 2012, the Center compiled data on 603 professionals working in corporate citizenship at all levels of seniority inside predominantly U.S. firms.

Among the report’s key findings:

  • Respondents report higher levels of education and experience than found in earlier surveys.
  • At every level, professionals in corporate citizenship highlight the importance of building relationships.
  • Professionals in corporate citizenship are highly satisfied in their jobs – and are motivated by the opportunity to make a difference in the world and to business success.
  • Workload and a lack of resources are the greatest challenges for professionals across all job titles in corporate citizenship.

The findings from the Profile of the Professionals survey allow professionals working in corporate citizenship to compare their own experience and background to that of their peers. It provides insight into how professionals at all levels assess the skills they need to be effective in their roles and what they perceive as the greatest challenges they must overcome.

The Profile of the Professionals is just one example of the research conducted by the Center for Corporate Citizenship. To learn more about the content of this research visit: bcccc.net/ProfileOfTheProfessionals.
