Honesty Really is the Best Policy for Attracting Talent

honesty is the best policyThe top three characteristics workers desire in an employer? Honesty, reliability, and work-life balance. This is according to a new study by staffing solutions provider Randstad. The study ranked the top 50 global employers by attractiveness based on a survey of more than 200,000 workers.

The winner? Auto manufacturer BMW. Sony and Samsung took second and third place.

Of course, obvious offerings such as high pay and great benefits are very important and desirable to workers. Yet provided the pay is fair, simple values – honesty, reliability, and good work-life balance ranked higher in importance.

This finding suggests the playing field for attracting talent might be more level than one might think. A smaller company might not be able to offer the same types of perks as a global one; yet it can surely offer workers a leader with integrity.
