What do Canadian candidates crave the most?

A recent survey found that Canadian jobseekers value vacation time, advancement opportunities and corporate culture in a job offer aside from the salary.

After surveying over 500 employees across Canada, Accountemps, found that for Millennials – those between 18 and 34 years old – the top attraction is the potential for career advancement, with 33% of respondents citing it as most important.

Candidates aged between 35-54 crave ample vacation time, with male jobseekers in this age bracket seemingly wanting it more than their female counterparts.

Meanwhile, for professionals 55 years old and above, a healthy corporate culture was their main concern, with 22% rating it as the most important factor at play – they also wanted more inclusive remote working options and training opportunities.

All of these insights can tell us a lot about what drives a candidate to accept a job offer – but do you know why employees decide to leave their role?
