Holding onto our staff is proving to be a real problem. How can we ensure our business is an attractive place to work?

A

The way people view work and what they expect from their employers has changed in recent years. Understanding their needs is the key to developing a dynamic, exciting and attractive place to work.

According to research from Studio Graphene who quizzed 2000 adults about their working lives, 30% of full-time employees plan to change jobs in 2019 — this rises to 39% among 18-34-year-olds. Also, 33% would take a lower salary if they could have a more satisfying role or better work-life balance.

Two fifths (39%) do not feel valued by their employers. Those who work in a large company (47%) are far more likely to feel this way than those in small companies (29%). Also, the same number (39%) do not feel their capabilities are being utilised correctly in their current job — again the figure jumps within large firms (45%) and even higher (46%) among those who earn over £75,000 a year.
