Topics in the survey included the general work environment, the salary policy, the corporate culture, the management style of the company's leadership, motivational criteria for applying to a particular company, and the manner of recruitment and employment processes.

WAGES…WHAT ELSE? SALARY POLICY REMAINS THE MOST IMPORTANT CRITERION WHEN APPLYING FOR A JOB

 

The Adecco survey involved over 1,300 workers and 155 companies in 16 countries1, asking them about the expectations of job applicants with the aim of finding out whether companies correctly assess the expectations of workers - and vice versa.Topics in the survey included the general work environment, the salary policy, the corporate culture, the management style of the company's leadership, motivational criteria for applying to a particular company, and the manner of recruitment and employment processes.

 

The salary, the atmosphere in the company and the career opportunities were the three most important criteria. The salary– including a possible health coverage – is on top of aspirations across all regions and age groups, from “Gen Z” to baby boomers: 53% of the survey’s participants mentioned it as their top criteria. Even more frequently than the applicants themselves, 80% of the Companies name salary as the top priority of the workers. The companies also assume that a good working atmosphere is almost as important to applicants as career opportunities. In the survey, however, workers show a clear preference for a good working atmosphere.All members of the Board of Directors (BoD) that stood for re-election were confirmed for another one-year term including Jean-Christophe Deslarzes, who is serving as Chair, as well as Kathleen Taylor, Ariane Gorin, Alexander Gut, Didier Lamouche, David Prince and Regula Wallimann.
