Is Money The Most Important Factor In Choosing Your Career?

What is the fundamental purpose of work? Money? Personal growth? Learning?

COVID-19 prompted many to rethink the place and role of work in their lives.

According to the World Economic Forum, the pandemic has revealed the critical importance of sustainably engaged, inclusive, diverse and resilient workforce.  The impact of businesses on the larger society, environment and employees has also become a foremost consideration for job applicants: 40% of 30,000 young people surveyed by Global Shapers see employers’ sense of purpose or impact on society as equally important as salary.

Finally, companies offering flexible working arrangements are increasingly appealing due to their potential to bring jobs where those are most needed.
