What do employees want from work in 2023


If you are an employer who wants to hire and retain the best people, then understanding what they want from you is vital. Barlow Irvin Financial Services Protection Specialist, Jade Winstanley, explains.

The days of simply paying someone a higher salary have long gone. According to a recent study published by Jobs for Good there are many factors that an employee will look for, and some of which may surprise you. Their survey shows the top 10:

1 Flexibility around hybrid working and hours worked.
2 Career progression.
3 Fair salary.
4 Benefits that work for them, the most popular are:

  • Enhanced family leave (extended parental leave, miscarriage leave etc)  
    • Enhanced pension
    • Self-care days  
    • Online traning and coaching programs  
    • Private health insurance  
    • four-day working week 
    • Early finish on Fridays  

    5 Transparency and trust.
    6 Recognition and appreciation.
    7 Work-life balance.8 An inclusive culture.
    9 Stability and job security.
    10 Purpose!
