Australia Talent Trends
It’s good news for employers; despite growing momentum in the employment sector, workers are ready to buckle down and commit to their current jobs.
For the first time in six years, there was an increase in both effort levels and employee commitment to current employers. Discretionary effort rose a small, but significant, 0.5 per cent to reach 18 per cent and end a six-year downward trend. At the same time, workers intent to stay increased 1.9 per cent, pulling ahead of other major global economies such as Japan, Canada and the United Kingdom.
To maximise employee’s renewed energy, organisations should ensure their employee value proposition focuses on what workers want most – development opportunities and work-life balance. Delivering on the right EVP will enable employers to strengthen employee engagement and satisfaction while bolstering discretionary effort and ultimately to retain their top talent.
