Highlights of this year’s salary survey
The results of this year’s survey highlight what employees and jobseekers want and to what extent they feel their expectations are being met.
A selection of the major findings in this year’s review include:
- Flexible working continues to be well received by employees, with 73% being happy with the flexible working options offered at work. Over 70% of jobseekers agree that employers should be prepared to pay higher salaries if they expect people to work from the office full-time.
- Employees wanting a salary increase was the most popular reason for leaving a job, at 21%, closely followed by lack of progression at 19.4%. This demonstrates how a move towards greater visibility in career development and salary benchmarking will help towards employee retention from the outset. With salary holding great significance in employee retention and acquisition, interestingly, 55% of employees said their salary hadn’t increased in the last 12 months.
- Over a third (33.6%) say that salary was the most important factor in attracting them to their current role, closely followed by job security at 29.2%. Despite being risk averse, jobseekers have no qualms when it comes to moving for the right pay cheque, with over half (50.2%) of people making it their top priority when looking for their next position.
