about this report.
When you think of working in the financial services sector, your first reaction might be of long hours and exhausting workplace pressures. Some of this is indeed true, but these pressures seem to be softened by the remuneration packages offered by the sector. Additionally, when we conducted the 2018 Randstad Employer Brand Research, an exhaustive survey of 175,000 working-age adults in 30 markets about their employment preferences, we found that workers also want more than just great salary and benefits.
In fact, a good work-life balance is their second-most desired quality in an employer while a pleasant work environment ranked fourth — demonstrating that companies seeking high-quality professionals need to offer more when attracting talent.
