Fewer and fewer recruiters would share such a viewpoint. Sure, money remains important. But many other factors have entered into the equation – ranging from a company’s purpose, to more practical issues such as its office surroundings. Just as overall customer experience has become increasingly relevant, so has employee experience.
Employees change jobs more frequently and power is shifting from the employer to the employee. Employees expect conditions that stimulate them to be more productive. To win the “war for talent”, offices also need to take account of the varying needs of different generations (baby-boomers, generation X, millennials, generation Z) in order to enhance their job satisfaction and productivity.
I have personally experienced the impact of different office solutions, both in client settings and in our own KPMG premises. I’d like to outline a few of the specific elements that impact office experience, and that may help you to attract and retain talent.
