For the second year, QTI surveyed job seekers to uncover their top job search requirements and understand what drives their engagement or disengagement with a company or job.  With over 340 responses, we discovered that competitive pay is still important but down from last year as a top job criteria.  Hybrid work is losing some importance, and having a job that the employee enjoys is crucially important for engagement.

Competitive Pay Still Matters

76% of respondents rate competitive pay as one of their top three job search criteria, down 6% from 2023. 2022’s #2 ranked “workplace flexibility” did not rank in the top 5.

  1. Competitive Pay (76%)
  2. A shift that matches my needs (46%)
  3. Location (46%)

Hybrid Work -- Cooling Off?

In 2022, more than half of respondents stated a hybrid work environment was very or extremely important when searching for a job.  This dropped to 43% for 2023.

  1. Extremely Important (17%)
  2. Very Important (26%)
  3. Somewhat Important (36%)
  4. Not So Important (13%)
  5. Not At All Important (8%)

Job Seekers Want Jobs They Enjoy

For 2023, the top three motivations for remaining at a job were unchanged from 2022 survey results.

  1. Enjoy the Work (32%)
  2. Competitive Pay (19%)
  3. Feel Respected (12%)

Work/Life Balance is Important

The top three reasons for leaving a job mirrored 2022 results.

  1. Work/Life Balance (48%)
  2. Work Environment, Organizational Culture (46%)
  3. Compensation (44%)
