What Do Workers Want?
You may think that your employees are most interested in getting more money and better job security, but SalesandMarketing .com recently reported that balancing business and personal demands is their top concern.
In a survey of 567 professionals conducted by OfficeTeam, a staffing services firm based in Menlo Park, California, 32 percent of respondents cited the balance issue as the number one career concern. Twenty-two percent chose job security and just 18 percent reported that competitive salary was of greatest concern.
Another recent survey by TrueCareers, an online job board based in Reston, Virginia, showed that 70 percent of more than 1,500 respondents don’t think there is healthy balance between their work and personal lives.
Consider this information the next time you plan schedules or reward employees for great performance. They may be keener on a flexible schedule than they are on a salary increase.
