What Workers Want
What Workers Want 2022Focus on wellbeing
Hays has conducted research into what employees exactly expect from and want in their current or future job. The results can be read in our What Workers Want report 2022.
What dó workers want?
We see a clear message for employers to focus on:
- 79% feel their employer has a responsibility for their employee wellbeing, while 54% said they have not received any support from their organisation in the past year
- 42% of the respondents often experience stress from deadlines or workload
- 53% do not feel recognised for their work and success
Employees are united in what they want for the future: contact with colleagues, investing to stay (mentally) healthy, continuing to learn and develop skills and at the same time not going back to the old way of working. Employers need to realise this all the more nowadays to ensure they can hire the best candidate and do not lose their current employees.
Are you taking the right steps towards the future?
Our research enables us to identify potential barriers, but also to uncover opportunities and insights.
What Workers Want is a tool for employers to work with when creating, or revising, a modern and effective HR-policy. In this way, we want to help professionals and, above all, guide them towards the future.
Our recommendations can help you, as an employer, to offer extra support to staff and to take on that role. And as an employee to take an honest look at how you can improve your working life, this is not only the responsibility of an employer.
