When it comes down to what really matters to Australians, work-life balance continues to be the single most important reason for employees to stay in their roles (54 per cent), according to research by Randstad.
At a time of high employment and talent scarcity, one third (30 per cent) of people are planning to change roles within a year. Here, young workers (aged 18 to 24) are set to be the most transient (40 per cent).
Looking at the impact on a business’ bottom line, Randstad’s research indicates a direct correlation with a job seeker’s experience and their consumer purchasing behaviour.
Here, 39 per cent of respondents strongly agreed that their experience as an employee with a company would influence their decision to purchase a product or service.
