Money isn’t everything

The second edition of the Employee Insights Survey conducted by international recruitment consultancy Robert Walters canvassed New Zealand employees across the disciplines of accounting, finance and banking, general management, human resources, IT, procurement and supply chain, sales and marketing and secretarial and business support services.

Coming close second to acknowledgement and appreciation (32.8%), 32.1% of respondents felt that the challenges of their role encouraged them the most, with nearly quarter (23.3%) stating that they were most motivated by their colleagues and/or company culture.

“These survey results come as very little surprise as people have basic desire to be recognised for the work they do and it is hugely demoralising when they feel their labours are largely ignored,” says Richard Manthel, managing director of Robert Walters New Zealand. “We are still talking to lot of disaffected employees who stuck with their organisations in the aftermath of the recession but have yet to receive any form of reparation for the additional work they took on. The loyalty these individuals once felt for their employers has been seriously diluted.”

The survey explores how candidates find new job opportunities, work-life balance initiatives and the experience candidates have when returning to New Zealand from overseas.
