What do candidates prioritize most in a job?

At Recruit IT, we focus strongly on how the dynamics of the labor market shift and what conditions candidates prioritize when seeking a new position. In this context, LinkedIn has also conducted a global analysis of workers’ attitudes and priorities when changing jobs.

Our own observations closely correlate with LinkedIn’s findings:

Top 5 most valuable elements for current candidates:

  1. Salary
  2. Work-life balance
  3. Flexibility

These priorities are supplemented by a trend that not only supports the above but also highlights that meaning and effective management continue to be of central importance.
