The Candidate Perspective
Top candidates that are looking to make job moves are most focused on jobs that can provide advancement opportunities, followed by improved compensation packages. This demonstrates that while compensation is an important deciding factor, job moves are largely driven by the chance for more responsibility and upward mobility that typically result in greater compensation. That said, the opportunity must present a reasonable work-life balance to be considered worthwhile.
The Employer Perspective
Choosing competitive compensation most often, employers appear to be slightly disconnected from what candidates prioritize when considering a job move: advancement opportunities.
When researching employment opportunities, job seekers expect employers to provide:
- Salary and compensation information
- Benefits packages
- Basic company information
- What makes it an attractive place to work
- Company mission, vision, and values
