UK workers rate a company’s reputation when seeking new jobs
More than half of UK workers (53%) would reject a job offer from a company with a reputation for poor job security, dysfunctional teams or poor leadership, according to a report from professional network LinkedIn.
The survey of more than 1,000 full-time British workers also found over a third (36%) of employees said flexible working arrangements would persuade them to take a job with an employer, even if their friends and family might not approve of the company.
Evidence of a positive internal culture was the next most important factor for those surveyed (34%), while a good reputation within the relevant industry (28%) also ranked highly.
Meanwhile, one in six UK workers (17%) would take a job with a company offering increased job security, greater professional development opportunities and a higher calibre of internal team, even without the offer of a pay rise.
