Great company culture is a top draw in retaining talent
Employers are poaching talent directly from competitors in a bid to mitigate skills shortages.
Talent solutions provider, Talent Works surveyed software and government professionals in the lead up to Talent Acquisition Day. The survey requested opinions on existing working policies and asked employees how often they’d been approached by other companies for new roles in the last year.
The research found that 38% of tech and government professionals were approached by competeitors more than five times in the last 12 months, with more than a fifth of employees saying that they’ll leave their current employer in 2022.
Other findings from the survey were:
- More than a third of organisations don’t have work from home polices in place
- Being asked to be in the office negatively impacts one in five employees
- Software professionals, and employees aged between 18 and 34-year-old are more likely to want to be in the office than women, government professionals and those who are older than 35
- Oppurtunities to advance their career (38%) and good company culture (33%) were things employees wanted most in their organisation.
