Tech professionals in today's workforce have growing expectations about the benefits and work conditions that employers should provide. A recent study conducted by Dice, a tech job platform, surveyed more than 9,000 tech professionals and found that they primarily value increased compensation, fully remote work, and flexible work hours. These professionals also cited job stability and professional development as top concerns. Employers not adapting to these wishes risk potential problems in retention and recruitment, with the study noting that 45% of respondents left their previous job due to lack of growth opportunities. The challenge for employers is to balance these growing expectations with operational needs to ensure an effective recruitment and retention strategy.
