Quality of Life

Recruiting Candidates Who Seek Meaning, Balance

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) released a report in October of 2012 regarding Employee Job Satisfaction and Engagement. The report shows employees’ overall satisfaction with their jobs is down five percentage points from its peak of 86% in 2009. SHRM suggests the attributing the fluctuation to changes in the workplace, social trends, and demographics.

SHRM suggests potential solutions to raising the bar on employee satisfaction, such as communication about the total rewards and building a bridge between employee and senior management.

But there’s another solution – and a potentially untapped pipeline of talent – that can be addressed and utilized: Those who seek a higher quality of life. This includes meaningful work, viability, overall meaning and value, and balancing career with a happy home.

The latest Qualigence whitepaper explores ways to find passive candidates looking to get more out of their career path while balancing it with their personal life.

Topics include:

  • What Defines Meaningful Work
