Working in a start-up is a ‘dream job’ for two thirds of people
Almost 90 percent of people want to leave their jobs, according to a new study.
Large, corporate employers are struggling to compete with start-ups in the “war for talent”, claims research recently published. The study of more than 1,000 people working in companies with over 500 employees found that 86 percent want to leave their jobs, with almost two thirds saying that working in a start-up would be ‘their dream job’.
Factors including ‘team morale’, ‘creative and dynamic environment’, ‘a sense of purpose’ and ‘the chance to progress your career as the company grows’ were cited as the main benefits of working for a start-up business.
However, there is a wide range of steps that employers of any size and in any context can take to recruit and retain the most talented employees: many of them cost nothing and provide lasting benefits to staff, the company and profitability.
