Closing the Skills Gap: What Workers Want| Manpower

Workforce Trends

As organizations continue to find ways to close skill gaps by attracting and retaining in-demand workers, this report by Manpower provides insights into what attracts talent to an organization, what keeps them there and how that varies by geography, gender, and at different stages of their career. More pay, flexibility, and challenging work are non-negotiables to all, but there are additional levers employers can pull to attract and retain various talent segments. For example, Gen X men (ages 35 -54) prioritize flexibility just as much as women: they want a flexible start and finish to their day, the ability to work remotely some, not all of the time, and they want their share of parental leave. This report has additional insights that can help to inform aspects of an organization’s talent strategy.
