Job security matters more this time

Part of Jobstreet.com’s survey on which companies they aspire to be a part of is the question why they want to work in these firms. Last year’s survey showed that a competitive basic salary is the primary reason when choosing a firm to work for, whereas the candidates asked this year indicated that job security is the foremost reason for their consideration.

These choices indicate that professional Filipinos are more interested in the long-term gains, as factors that directly affect their professional lives such as career growth offerings and promotion, and career-enhancing training and development opportunities. A strong leadership team that can mentor them in their professional trajectory are now more preferred, making it in the top 5 attributes of an aspirational company.

A total of 3,658 respondents participated in this year’s series of surveys that were sent out in May 2017. The respondents came from different position levels (predominantly junior executives and fresh graduates) and represented various specializations.
