The survey data enables leaders of the sector to make more strategic decisions to retain and attract talent
deverellsmith, the London based recruitment and talent solutions partner for the property industry, announced that it has launched a survey which aims to uncover property professionals’ opinions and attitudes towards remuneration, employee benefits and career opportunities.
The industry is experiencing one of the biggest talent shortages in a generation, counteroffers are more prominent than ever, employers are battling to recruit talent and reduce attrition and wage inflation is driving business spend exponentially.
According to Hallio, companies with high employee engagement are 21% more profitable, however only 33% of employees feel engaged at work. Failing to communicate with employees and prospective talent will not only reduce shareholder value but cost significant time and resource.
The answers provided will allow deverellsmith to help employers make smarter, data-driven decisions surrounding pay and benefits and help to identify sectors of the market that may need to focus on training, education and career planning.
The survey is completely anonymous which will allow participants to be entirely honest in their answers and a charitable donation will be made for every survey that is completed, participants can even tell deverellsmith which type of cause they’d prefer the donation to go to.
The results of the survey will coincide with the official launch of deverellsmith’s RPO function, which is headed up by Managing Director, Pete Sheppard.
Sheppard comments, ‘The post-pandemic climate has resulted in unfamiliar territory for employers. The candidate shortage has allowed jobseekers to have higher demands in terms of salary and other benefits throughout the interview process.’
He continues, ‘Businesses who choose to operate ‘as usual’ will not only lose current staff but fail to attract the best in market. Any property firm seeking to scale efficiently will benefit from the data findings.’
