Why people change jobs?

Here the top 3 reasons

These are the three main reasons why employees quit their jobs.

1. Lack of opportunity

When people can put their skills and abilities to use in the jobs they’re doing, they tend to feel a sense of usefulness, self-confidence, and accomplishment. Employees are happier if they’re engaged in activities at which they are good that exercise their skills and abilities even more.

People want to develop their skills, and if a job doesn’t give them the ability to do that, they will start looking for one that offers it. This same applies to opportunities; if a workplace does not offer opportunities for growth and advancement, employees will go where they can find them.

People want to apply their knowledge and improve at what they’re doing. They’re looking for a challenge, and if they feel that their skills are not being challenged, they will feel unfulfilled. It’s like a pilot who loves flying but isn’t able to fly.

Remember: People are looking for fulfillment, purpose, and growth in their job.

 

2. A toxic workplace or company culture

In an ideal workplace, everyone behaves with courtesy and colleagues complement one another. Bosses even check up on staff occasionally and are interested in what’s going on in their personal lives.

However, as we all know, there is no ideal workplace, and personalities do not always blend so seamlessly. In every organization, some occasional clashes, interpersonal conflicts, office gossip, cunning workers, sly bosses, attention-seeking colleagues, and inconsiderate co-workers could appear, and any of those could turn into the reason that workers consider leaving a job.

One of the problems could be inter-office competition. Even if a workplace is generous, providing flexible hours and generous vacation, a workplace filled with competitors might actually hinder workers from making full use of the benefits available to them. Employees may feel that making use of them by, for example, scheduling vacations, could get them penalized, causing them to be at a competitive disadvantage and making them feel dissatisfied.

Company culture can vary from department to department and even from manager to manager, so leaders in every company need to be consistent in building the same culture throughout the entire organization.

 

3. A better salary and financial stability

Money matters, after all, everyone has to think about their personal finances when he or she decides which organization he or she wants to work for.

Because of all of that, money is also a reason why employees leave their jobs. If a new job offers just a small raise, people do not care; if you offer them a significantly higher wage, you will get their attention.

Employee retention matters

It’s no secret that retaining top talent is key to promoting organizational growth. Recruiting and retaining new employees is expensive and time consuming.

Main post image

Employee retention is the number of employees that stay with their company in a given period of time. Typically, these employees only count as “retained” if they are happy, engaged, productive, and not looking for other work. Employee retention strategies help organizations prevent high turnover, usually through boosting employee engagement and providing competitive benefits.

In short, the longer that people work for you, the higher your retention rate. The more often you find yourself hiring and firing for the same role, the lower your retention rate.

Here are three reasons why understanding your employee retention rate is important:

Your team is better and more productive

Companies that can retain their employees benefit from people that not only know their role, but can work well as a team. These people often grow to be influential leaders within the organization. They not only can fulfill their rules well, but they’re able to train others.

Improves company culture

It’s very uncomfortable to work in an environment where you feel like you could be fired at any moment. And hiring new faces can be exciting, but it can also make you feel like you don’t actually know anybody. High retention boosts camaraderie. It’s good for employee morale and improves productivity. Less hours are spent processing incoming and outgoing employees.

Reduces expenses

Acquiring new employees can be costly. And even once they’re in the door, each employee represents a significant investment of time and training. When those employees are happy with their jobs, companies are awarded with higher commitment, skill, and morale. High turnover means that employers lose the benefit of both employee skill and on-the-job experience.

3 benefits of recruiting an international team 

Despite offices opening back up, many companies continue their remote recruitment efforts. Learn more about the three major benefits of looking for fresh talent globally.

Main post image

Today, many companies continue their remote recruitment efforts despite offices opening back up, allowing for a more expansive talent pool and widespread brand recognition.

As businesses increase their adoption of remote talent recruitment, they simultaneously become more open to international recruitment. This is partly thanks to flexible work environments, the increased integration of virtual meetings, and shifts in internal operations.

Whether due to necessity or expansion, below are some major benefits of hiring international talent. 

 

1. Diversity

When organizations hire talent from the same geographic and cultural backgrounds, they are more likely to overlook perspectives outside of their own.

Hiring diverse talent, whether in engineering, marketing, or customer service positions, can help increase creativity, help solve problems faster with new perspectives, help companies connect with their customers, and help businesses build products that truly serve their global markets.

This also cultivates a positive brand perception because hiring internationally shows your company values workplace diversity, embraces new ideas, and promotes inclusion.

 

2. Increases market insight

Market insight is one of the main benefits of international recruiting. Companies with homogenous workforces must do extensive research when entering new markets, and even then, are prone to legal mishaps or cultural misunderstandings. Having employees spread across the globe gives companies access to experts with intimate knowledge of the market’s norms and complexities and can help better prepare for international expansion. Having people on the ground can reduce research costs and prevent missteps.

 

3. Win more talent

The primary advantage to international recruitment is that it expands your talent pool. If your open positions are limited only to those who live in the same country, you might struggle to find high-caliber talent. By recruiting internationally, you have a world of options at your fingertips. There are talented professionals in every single country, and you’d be doing your business a disservice by not calling upon their skills and experience. Test and hire employees from all over the world and see just how much it improves your workplace culture, employer brand, and overall market insight.

3 top jobs trending in Canada in 2022

Check out the list to see what employers are looking for this year.

Main post image

Many factors, such as economics, social trends, and industrial change, contribute to whether a job has enough qualified professionals to fill vacant positions. Understanding which jobs may be in demand in the year 2022 is crucial to planning your career path and situating yourself in a career that will be sustainable.

A study from Randstad from December 2021 found that nearly half of Canadian employees are thinking of switching jobs in 2022 toward employers that can adapt to meet their needs. These are the Top 3 In-Demand Jobs in Canada for 2022:

1. Key account manager

In a competitive, lean mid- and post-pandemic market, key account managers are critical to supporting ongoing business success. Their ability to close deals, form lasting relationships and provide high-quality sales and customer service efforts helps businesses keep their most profitable clients, even during unprecedented times.

2. Developer

As businesses turn increasingly to technical solutions, developers are in high demand. This is one of the top jobs in part because businesses of all types and sizes need developers to create app solutions, develop or maintain in-house software or help implement cloud or other technologies.

One of the lessons learned during COVID-19 lockdowns in recent years was that technology could make or break a business. Companies that seamlessly transitioned into remote work environments often fared better. Add to that the growing need to rely on data and automations to remain competitive, and it’s no wonder so many businesses are on the hunt for skilled developers.

3. Marketing manager

Growing demand in this sector is due to a couple of reasons. Inhale to competition and trying to be as intelligent as possible with the marketing spend.

Marketing managers play a crucial role in helping a business to promote and sell its products to its customers. They can lead and influence the way a brand looks and feels in the market and marketing manager duties can cover the entire spectrum of how a company communicates.

Is your company needing to hire some of these positions?

Even if you are not in Canada, did you know that you can hire employees from anywhere in the world in an easy, fast, economical and legal way? Contact Us

Although specialists predict that quitting will continue steadily at similar, elevated rates we’ve seen over the past year, they are not confident that we’ll see another big quitting wave in 2022.
That’s because the tight labor market has pushed companies to offer better benefits and higher salaries, that will keep employee turnover from being “completely rampant” in the months ahead.
What are companies doing to seduce employees?

 

Flexible work arrangements will be the norm, not the exception

The freedom to work from anywhere has become the most sought-after benefit during the pandemic – so much so that people value flexibility as much as a 10% pay raise, according to new research from the WFH Research Project.

More companies will embrace this change to attract and retain talent. Leaders are starting to ask: “How can we give people more power over their schedules? How can we be more flexible?”

Managers that blame external factors for turnover – whether it be government leadership, the pandemic, unemployment benefits or other reasons – and refuse to offer flexible work arrangements will be the “losers who struggle in the wake of the Great Resignation”.

Flexible working culture will lead to better work-life balance and improved mental health for employees. HR leaders know that work will fit around our personal lives rather than our personal lives fitting around work.

 

Remote jobs will become more competitive

As companies struggle to hire in the United States, a growing number of managers could turn to automation and international candidates to fill open roles.

The pandemic accelerated the trend toward automation as companies embraced digital waiters, concierges and other technologies amid social distancing rules and virus fears. In 2020, the World Economic Forum surveyed about 300 global companies and found that 43% of businesses expect to reduce their workforces with new technology.

Economist predicts that companies will make larger investments in robots and artificial intelligence to reduce hiring times and costs even after the pandemic subsides.

 

Those same benefits could push companies to hire more international candidates for remote roles and create even more competition for remote jobs, he adds. In the United States, employees tend to be paid higher wages than people in many other countries. If you’re a remote organization, you can recruit workers from all over the world who can do the same job for a cheaper rate.

The future of work: remote working in 2022

The future of work: remote working in 2022

How will companies adopt and adapt their processes for remote work this year

Roots EOR Main post image

Every year is a new challenge for companies. Here we mention three predictions related to work:

Prediction #1 – Remote work will become normal for the majority

Companies that don’t open up to remote working, or that insist on restrictive working models, will face problems in hiring and finding the right people.

In 2022, this will carry on. For those that invested early in supporting remote work, they will see the problems settle down earlier compared to those that either have not invested or did so half-heartedly. The challenge will be not so much the technology to support doing all this securely, but how to maintain the right processes and team culture over time. When people are not physically working alongside each other, and when communication is all asynchronous, it can be more difficult to keep the right culture in place.

Prediction #2 – Onboarding and offboarding will have to change

With all this hiring and with more churn in staff, there will be more pressure on how to manage those employees and get them set up properly. Provisioning services and applications will get more attention from both the tech team and from HR, as employee experience goes from a minor issue to one that affects long-term retention of staff.

In practice, companies will struggle more with how they manage removing access and managing assets. Getting employees through the front door will get the most attention – after all you never get a second chance to make a good first impression – but managing how to get assets back will need just as much work.

Automating the deprovisioning process will help, as access rights can be tied to the device and then triggered as part of returning equipment. Doing this remotely will get more attention too, as employers will not want to risk shipping back devices that are not secured properly. Taking care of devices will be problematic if it doesn’t have good insight into what users have in place, how they use those devices, and how they can be managed over time.

Prediction #3 – How we measure work will have to change

When everything is working well, technology can help companies big and small to be more effective. However, what does effective support look like when employees are remote for the majority of the time? How do companies define the services that they need, and track their results?

In 2022, companies will have to think seriously about how they measure work and results. The traditional approach of tracking hours in the office is not appropriate – you might say it never was, even before COVID-19 – yet many managers currently don’t feel comfortable or able to adopt results-based approaches instead. Overcoming this mindset is essential.

During the next year, we’ll see two kinds of approaches – those companies that work out how to measure employee performance by results that they deliver over time, and those that try to keep that old oversight model in place. For the first group, the challenge is how to ensure that they get the right level of productivity in place and that employees are challenged rather than overworked. For the second group, the biggest challenge will be retention. Too much oversight will lead talented staff to look elsewhere.

The goal should be to work in the right way, providing strong support and with a good company culture in place in all interactions, regardless of how those interactions take place. At the same time, teams will have to look at how their processes function when work can be asymmetric and asynchronous, rather than tied to specific business hours. In the year ahead, this will be what many IT teams will have to work on internally across their own processes, and they will have to take those lessons out to the wider business too.

Remote work is here to stay

Knowing how to keep your work structure strong with employees working all over the world is critical. In addition, it is also essential to attract new talent. Do you want to hire employees from all over the world but don’t know how to do it? Contact Us
