Employees want job security following the pandemic
Job security is the most important factor for employees when considering remaining with their employer according to a recent poll. In a survey of 1,004 employees, more half of employees cited job security as an important consideration for them in staying with their employer.
In contrast, less than a third of employees cited pay as an important factor, which suggests that things may have changed following the pandemic. Employers may therefore expect focus on job security to remain a priority for employees for some time.
Businesses may also expect that their staff will wish to continue with flexible working following what for many has been a year of remote working.
The survey also found that three-quarters of employees felt their businesses had handled the Covid crisis well.
