The 3 Things Employees Really Want: Career, Community, Cause
These are the 3 things that employees really want, but most companies are only built around one.
Career - a position that allows you to problem solve, grow, and aligns with your strengths
Community - feeling valued and acknowledged by others and creating connected relationships
Cause - making a difference and being driven by a purpose to make the world a better place
Interestingly, all age groups seem to share these motivators, but cause seems to become more relevant to the over 55 demographic.
Focusing on these important pillars allows for companies to better recruit, retain, and satisfy employees.
