Amid the Great Resignation, Perks and Pay Are No Longer Enough
What do you think is most important when it comes to employee satisfaction? Pay? Perks and Benefits? Work with a purpose?
That's what United Minds set out to discover in our new global study on the employee experience. What we found may surprise you! While perks and pay tend to dominate the discussion, our research reveals the that the ability to make a meaningful contribution on the job is just as important. These and other new insights will be key to companies looking to find, keep and engage employees in a hyper-competitive marketplace.
The Contribution Effect surveyed nearly 2,800 office-based, front-line and trade/manufacturing employees in seven countries to assess what matters most to today's talent.
We learned that in addition to a positive work environment, maintaining the agency and flexibility gained during the pandemic along with the opportunity to do valued, fulfilling work are the most important factors in employee satisfaction.
