According to a CROP-CHRA survey, despite the economic crisis, organizational stability isn’t workers’ number one concern.

Despite the uncertainty sparked by the economic crisis, even when pay is excluded from the equation, employees don’t appear to consider organizational stability to be a major factor in their decision to change jobs. These are the findings of a CROP survey released today to mark the seminar on recruitment organized by the Ordre des conseillers en ressources humaines agréés.

In fact, the CROP-CRHA survey shows that, apart from salaries, working conditions and flexible hours are the main reasons employees would accept another job if they had to change employers in the next year (32% of respondents). Organizational stability ranks second with 20%, while work atmosphere and opportunities for advancement were mentioned by 15% and 11% of workers respectively.

“These figures confirm that work/personal life balance remains the most important issue employers have to try to resolve whether or not there’s an economic crisis,” explained Florent Francoeur, CHRP, Ordre president and CEO.
