The Top 6 Things Employees Want in Their Next Job

The Top 6 Things Employees Want in Their Next Job

1. A significant increase in income or benefits (64% said “very important”)
Throughout Gallup’s historical workplace research, pay has been one of the most important factors when accepting a new job offer. Unsurprisingly, it continues to top the list amid the “Great Reshuffling” of talent happening in the workforce. What did surprise us, however, is how much “pay and benefits” have increased in importance.
Since 2015, this item has risen in priority for workers from No. 4 on our list with 41% of employees citing it as “very important,” to No. 1 with 64% of employees naming it as a critical factor in taking a new job. One key reason for this shift is employees are aware they are in a job seeker’s market now. Wages are rising in response to intense competition for talent. Job seekers know there are opportunities to make more money, which gives them the confidence to seek higher pay.
