26 Dec What makes a great company culture for business phone, internet, and IT engineers?
The perks some companies are offering when competing for qualified employees have become somewhat extreme. Free beer on Fridays, a personal assistant for every employee, unlimited vacation are just a few, to seemingly bribe candidates into joining their company.
These perks are certainly enticing, but what really motivates business phone, internet, and IT engineers to choose one company versus another? According to the 2018 Brand Health Report conducted by Hire.com, the top five factors considered by tech professionals when applying for a position include:
- 55% – Compensation & Benefits
- 45% – Company Culture
- 44% – Opportunity to Learn New Skills
- 29% – Challenging Technical Problems to Solve
- 28% – Team Environment
In actuality, a “company’s culture” jumped to the #2 spot, leap-frogging above “the opportunity to learn new skills,” which has held that spot since 2017. A “negative company culture” was cited by 36% of the respondents as a factor that turns tech talent away from applying with a company.
