This year’s survey results taught us that employees generally prefer to stay and grow with their companies. It is concerning, therefore, how few are getting the career development they need to thrive and advance in place. This perfectly explains the disconnect we first noticed last year — where we saw, and continue to see, how many people are willing to walk away from companies they love.

Another surprise was the theme of fairness — which runs throughout the findings. When we consider how reviews and ratings are the gatekeepers for pay and advancement opportunities, it is absolutely critical that employers ensure all employees have an equal shot at a consistent and fair employee experience.

Throughout this report, we have offered recommendations for companies looking to improve the employee experience and their overall employee deal.
