Finding it difficult to recruit top talent?
According to recent studies by the Open University, employers across the country have experienced problems recruiting suitably qualified workers in the past year, with some claiming they’ve had to offer higher salaries in order to fill the position.
Although, our research has revealed that it’s not just the lure of a bigger pay packet motivating people to take up a new position, often it’s the opportunity to progress and the actual working conditions that attracts them to certain companies!
Yes, believe it or not the environment in which we work can make a real difference to people’s attitude towards their jobs.
Creating a workplace that promotes positive feelings and improves productivity is essential for any organisation, yet it’s surprising how few companies design their office space with these benefits in mind. Lighting, acoustics, décor, furniture even the state of the washrooms can all have an effect on staff well-being. An attractive, well planned, comfortable working environment is said to lead to greater staff retention and even attract the right candidates!
So surely it’s worth considering the humble working environment and ensuring it matches up to the overall recruitment experience?
