Many headlines in recent years have focused on job-hoppers and leavers. But what about those who stay with their employer for the long-term?
Moving roles may be tempting, but those companies with strong organizational culture, clear career pathways and financial security have more allure for some employees.
Of course, job satisfaction isn’t just about pay packets and perks. To some, it’s about growing with an organization and being part of something that they have helped develop over time.
“I think longevity builds respect and trust, and a chance to build something bigger than yourself.” – Nick, Architect
Moves also come with risk: career stability and comfort can persuade employees to remain at an organization for many years, even decades.
Even though a great number of workers feel the need to continue switching and moving to learn new skills and remain relevant for an uncertain future, others are content to remain busy, engaged, and well remunerated.
Ambition isn’t universal. The companies that thrive are the ones that can remain flexible and to accommodate their workers’ needs – including their overall happiness.
