What do workers really want?
Anyhow, what do workers really want--what attracts them? Besides having a job in the first place.
CareerBuilder says 72% of employers will increase pay levels this year and 47% will offer higher starting salaries.
But money isn't everything. (They say.)
People also want growth opportunities--a path, variety.
Flexibility also ranks high--this would be the work-at-home sometimes option or attention to work-life balance.
Bennies also need to be competitive within the industry--meaning health insurance, educational, vacation time, and bonuses.
I would say people will go to an interesting place, with a future, and one that respects what they bring.
