Entering 2023, organizations looking to hire and retain the best talent must continue to focus on what those candidates prioritize.
According to a recent study by LinkedIn, those priorities have shifted slightly since last year, but there is still an emphasis on work-life balance and compensation, with the top five priorities being:
Compensation, including salary and benefits
Balance: support from the organization in balancing work and personal life
Flexibility in where and when work is completed
Upskilling: opportunities to learn new skills
Advancement: career growth opportunities within the company
According to Jennifer Shappley, VP of Global Talent Acquisition at LinkedIn, “People are looking for stability amidst the economic volatility we live in and read about daily, so it makes sense that candidates are prioritizing compensation as they evaluate opportunities. More interesting to me is that, even facing an uncertain future, people still highly value two areas of work life that have gotten a lot of attention since the start of the pandemic: work-life balance, and flexible work arrangements – including remote work. I expect those two attributes to remain top talent drivers for years to come.”
