What do employees want most?

At a recent ERE recruiting conference, Joel Spolsky spoke on the One Thing Employees Want Most.

According to Joel, that’s opportunities to continue learning and growing in their career.

Do you agree?  What are some other things employees look for in a job?  Perhaps:

  • a boss and coworkers they work well with
  • work they love
  • work/life balance
  • recognition
  • and let’s not forget, compensation

Maybe it depends on the individual, but no amount of learning and growth – or money – is enough to sustain an employee if the other aspects of a great work environment don’t exist.
