Survey reveals deal breakers of Singaporean jobseekers
Six in 10 feel they have a strong negotiation position when looking for jobs.
The best way to win the talent war is to have a good understanding of jobseekers' work preferences and priorities. For Singaporeans, these priorities include work-life balance and a flexible working arrangement.
A survey by SEEK showed that two-thirds of job seekers in the Lion City prefer companies offering proper work-life balance.
Work-life balance and financial compensation are the top two deal breaks for jobseekers in Singapore when accepting job offers, according to SEEK.
Over the past year, 74% of job seekers were approached multiple times with job opportunities.
Other factors which jobseekers prioritise when choosing work include career advancement into leadership positions (44%), opportunities for upskilling and reskilling (26%), and working on exciting projects and initiatives (25%) are also high on jobseekers’ priorities list.
