Survey: What Attracts Top Tech Talent?
To retain top tech talent, companies need to think bigger than pay. According to a survey of 500 tech employees and 230 enterprise technology organizations globally, the top reasons that employees start looking for a new job are: 1) a lack of learning and growth opportunities, 2) lack of flexibility, and 3) insufficient rewards and recognition for their work. In short, people want a supportive work environment — opportunities, flexibility, and recognition are all elements of that. Other leading factors include a culture that prioritizes diversity and inclusion, an inclusive working environment, and work that uses the latest tools and methodologies. Companies should consider the value proposition they’re offering employees, recognize that job flexibility and modern technology are key differentiators, and invest in diversity and inclusion efforts.
