Real people. Real stories. Real insights.
We levelled up our survey this year with relevant questions informed by current pain points Australians are experiencing in 2023 and projected to experience in 2024. We predicted that economic strains such as rising inflation, continuous interest rate hikes, and talks of a recession would influence what people will prioritise when it comes to their jobs – and we were right.
23/24 respondents tell us they favour salary, job stability, and flexible working, with all generations ranking salary as their number 1 factor that would attract them to a new role. It’s also no surprise that 61% of respondents told us they’ve taken action in the last 12 months due to the rising cost of living, with many Australians feeling the pinch as the cost of living continues to rise. On the flip side, respondents have also said they are less likely to budge from their current roles in comparison to last year.

‘Employers need to start by putting themselves in the shoes of the employees during this current cost of living crisis and acknowledge that times are hard and people are burnt-out. Ensuring a potential employee knows that they will be looked after is essential’
'Communicate honestly and often throughout the process'
