5 things employees are looking out for

As such, hiring managers are concerned with getting the best employees and retaining them for the good of the company.

Here are the top 5 things that employees are looking for.

Salary

Employees in Kenya, like in most developing countries, are still in need of basic needs – or the physiological layer under Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.

As such, most employees are looking out for jobs that offer a competitive salary that allows them to cater for their needs.

Even employees who are out of the lower strata in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs will look out for competitive salaries as it makes them feel appreciated.

Job Security

Employees in most parts of the globe are concerned about their future and will therefore look out for job security when looking for potential employers.

Organisations that have a low turnover and a stable working environment are attractive to employees.

Career Growth

Growth is a natural part of human progression and also applies in the organizational context.

Employees will always look out for opportunities that grow their careers and allow them to expand their knowledge and skills. It is therefore crucial to ensure the organisations offers growth opportunities for employees to pursue their professional interests at the highest levels in their specific fields of work.

Training of employees and opportunities for promotion in their organisations.

Flexibility

Employees look out for employers who who consult and involve them in deciding working hours.

The younger generation is particularly concerned about flexibility in their workplaces. As such, most employees will want to work in an environment where they can achieve a balance between their professional and personal lives.

To catch the eyes of the most skilled employees, organisations are coming up with flexible working schedules such as the work from home policy.

Purpose

While immediate need for most employees in Kenya is salary, organisations that offer purpose are increasingly popular. Employees are not merely concerned about money or career growth, but they also want a professional environment that provides them with a higher purpose. Most people who are looking for employment will look out for a job that offers them an opportunity to make a difference.
