7 key attributes of the employee experience that people value


Every company wants to be a destination workplace to which talent flocks. Few achieve it.

Why? Likely because what we think people value – and what they actually want– aren’t always in alignment.

Rather than asking people what they want in a job, we presented roles offering different attributes to 8,000 people. This helped us identify key factors of the employee experience that drive career decision making.

No matter if you offer below-market compensation or market-leading benefits, if you’re a regional company or multinational icon, there’s a way for you to stand out in the competition for top talent. What we discovered might just surprise you.
