How to attract the perfect employee


6 July 2015

With the UK job market becoming more and more competitive as the economy continues to recover, consumer insurance company BGL has created a new infographic to show how businesses can convince the crème dela crème of prospective employees to join them.

From an attractive salary to the promise of career development, there are plenty of ways to make your workplace an attractive place for job hunters.

  • For over half (56.5%) of Western European candidates, salary tops their list of employer selection criteria when looking for a job abroad
  • 83% of people who joined a company in the last two years cited flexibility as an “important factor” when they decided to accept the role
  • Regular development reviews are essential for personal development. 40% of employees who receive poor job training leave their positions within the first year
  • 42% of finance professionals stated that having a clear career path and opportunities for promotion are the most important factors in achieving job satisfaction
