What key attributes do you look for in your dream job?
Standard working hours, a good relationship with colleagues or a transparent organisation?
According to a recent study on talent attraction and retention – none of the above.
The top five attributes in the attraction of talent were ranked in order of importance by respondents as “opportunity for long term career progression”, “attractive overall compensation and benefit package”, “provide work life balance”, “opportunity to work in
different roles” and “training and development”.
When it came to the top five attributes in the retention of talent, respondents ranked
