Top perks motivate employees to remain at their workplace
Recruiting and training new employees costs money, time and resources, so it’s important to keep good people when you find them. Yet many employers may be surprised by what makes their staff want to keep working for them.
CareerBuilder recently surveyed 2,611 hiring managers and 3,991 workers within the U.S. and showed that, after compensation, employees valued flexible schedules most—even over having an important title. Janet Salopek, president and senior consultant for a human resources consulting firm in Calgary, agrees that it’s the intangible things that really matter when it comes to employee recruitment and retention. That doesn’t mean compensation is insignificant—it’s just not as important as people think.
