Survey Shows Similarities Between American Employees and Global Counterparts
TROY, MI--(Marketwired - Sep 30, 2014) - American employees could hardly be more similar to their global counterparts in the key factors they consider in weighing job opportunities, according to new research from Kelly Services®, a leader in providing workforce solutions.
The latest Kelly Global Workforce Index™ shows that 85 percent of the U.S. workers surveyed and 84 percent of those worldwide report that salary, benefits and other financial incentives make an employer attractive or drive their decision to accept one job over another.
Similarly, 64 percent of both groups identify work/life balance as a key factor, and opportunities for advancement are cited by 63 percent of U.S. respondents and 62 percent globally. And both groups say these same three factors are most likely to cause them to leave their current organization or change jobs or careers.
"The close tracking of the results shows that financial satisfaction, personal balance and professional growth are universal expectations among today's workforce," said Steve Armstrong, senior vice president and general manager, U.S. operations for Kelly Services. "Employers who best accommodate these needs will be the most successful in attracting and retaining the talent they need to grow their businesses."
Among other results of the survey:
The KGWI was conducted online by RDA Group on behalf of Kelly Services. Approximately 230,000 people across the Americas, EMEA and APAC regions -- including approximately 102,000 in the United States -- responded to the survey. To access the complete KGWI global report, please click here.
