Positive employment experience despite the disruption
According to a recent survey, Brits have had a positive experience joining and working for businesses.
Employment experience has been rated positively despite the disruption in the business world over the last year. For instance, 21% of UK employees stated that they are better off in their new roles than at the start of the pandemic, whereas 59.7% of UK employees positively rate their current role. Along with this, 76.3% said that their experience while being hired for their current role was positive.
Support and guidance during the induction process are just as important as the hiring process, with 77.8% rating this positively. Only 5% of employees rated that they had a poor onboarding experience. 66% of workers believe that training should be continuous to accommodate the change in their jobs roles. There are correlations between long-term job satisfaction and a positive hiring process.
Digital training and learning resources are integral to retain talent. The UK ranks the highest in the survey, with 52.6% saying they have positive training experiences combining digital and physical channels. In addition, 21.6% of UK employees use e-learning and webinar opportunities.
Tables have turned, and recruitment has recently become a candidate market. Businesses need to become more competitive in order to attract higher-quality candidates. Having an Employment Value Proposition (EVP) is now becoming a staple in business plans and strategies.
As Richard Branson would say, “Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough, so they don’t want to.”
