Executive Summary

It’s a candidate-driven market. Unemployment is low and career options are high. As a result, job seekers and employees have leverage. They know what they want, and in some cases, even demand it. Not to mention, their wants have changed over time.

What does this mean for employers—for your company? It means you must work to understand America’s workers better than ever. Because the more you know about them (and offer them), the more you appeal to them.

Fortunately, “The 2018 U.S. Workforce Report: Attracting Talent and Retaining Employees” tells you everything you need to know. It includes two sets of survey data. First, to represent employers, what 500 executives think workers want, and second, to represent America’s workforce, what 1,000 employed workers actually want.

By reading the report, you’ll see where employers and workers are on the same page, and where they’re not. You can then adjust your attraction, hiring and retention strategies accordingly in order to build your company’s most productive and happy workforce.
