The article focuses on an online survey conducted by OnePoll.com in January 2008, titled "Worthwhile Work." The report found that private companies were witnessing a damaging brain drain to the public and charity sectors. More than 40 percent of 18-25 year-olds said they were considering a move to the public or charity sectors. The findings show that private-sector firms need to be clearer about their wider benefit to society in delivering goods and services as well as in contributing to the exchequer.
