PERTH, AUSTRALIA, August 30, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A recent survey conducted by Morgan McKinley, a global professional services recruiter has revealed some worrying statistics for businesses all across Australia. The survey which targeted workers from a wide range of industries found that a staggering 70% of Australia's workforce would consider a job overseas. Surprisingly the survey found that money wasn't a leading incentive for the majority of those asked, with only 16% stating that a pay rise alone would tempt them overseas. The greatest draw overseas according to Australia's workers is a greater opportunity for progression within their industry. According to Morgan McKinley 60% of Australians feel that their current job roles lack progression, and that if they were offered a position overseas would seriously consider it. Sales and Marketing firm are concerned about the findings and feel that it's up to businesses to ensure they are providing enough opportunities and benefits to their workforce to encourage them to stay.
The survey found that many Australians believe that roles overseas provide far greater career progression. The number none destination for Australians was Asia, where they believe the economy is far healthier and can provide much faster progression than back home. Many workers also felt their current roles lacked challenges and believed that a move overseas would be far more challenging and broaden their horizons, allowing them to learn more specialized industry knowledge. Hype Initiatives are eager for Australia to hold on to its talented workforce. The firm has offered the following advice to businesses, in the hope of inspiring them to review their working practices and appreciate workers for their individual and unique talents.
Create an Attractive Experience
Business owners should make a special effort to understand what their workforce want, and try their best to make the workplace an as enjoyable environment as possible. Many workers across the country feel undervalued by their employer, therefore Hype Initiatives believe it's important in business to develop healthy communication between management and workers to let them know that their opinions matters.
Walk in Their Shoes
Business leaders will only truly understand how their workforce is feeling through putting themselves in their shoes. By considering the work experience through their eyes businesses can identify areas that need improvement and encourage personal growth.
Ensuring hard work is noticed and rewarded will spread a positive message among a workforce as a whole. When individuals feel appreciated they have more of an incentive to stay loyal to a business.
