Appointments Personnel are using their annual salary survey to uncover employee attitudes when moving jobs and help aid staff retention for local businesses

With new figures revealing that over half of UK workers are looking to move into a new role, a leading recruitment agency based in Staffordshire is keen to discover the attitudes of local employees and employers when it comes to leaving currents roles and staff retention.

In their 2018 Recruitment Outlook and Salary Survey report, Appointments Personnel are seeking to uncover the reasons why local employees are choosing to leave their current roles and how local businesses are attempting to retain their star staff.

The report, which is created by Appointments Personnel each year, gives local businesses and jobseekers a complete overview of the regional recruitment landscape and a valuable salary benchmarking tool to gauge how attractive employment packages are for engaging and retaining quality employees in our area.

Appointments Personnel provide recruitment solutions to small and medium sized businesses across Cheshire and Staffordshire and will be releasing their salary survey shortly, once the relevant data has been collated. The report will contain vital information about recruitment trends as well as real time salary information and gives employers insights into what jobseekers deem to be the most important perks and benefits when looking for employment.

Emma Bonfiglio, Managing Director of Appointments Personnel, said:

“According to research at CV Library, at present, one in five SMEs are struggling with high levels of staff turnover and are having a hard time retaining quality members of staff. In order to rectify this problem, companies need to look internally and think of ways that they can boost morale and create a better culture within their company.

“Offering fair and competitive packages with clear room for progression is a sure fire way to ensure that staff feel motivated and good about the work that they are doing. Our annual Salary Survey acts as a helpful local salary benchmarking tool and enables employees to find out how their current pay rates matches up in comparison to those in similar roles.”

“That’s why we create a locally focused report each year, to give employees and job seekers a clear indication about local salaries and also give them an opportunity to compare these against regional averages. We are now seeking help from employers and employees locally and will be sending e shots to all of our clients and candidates with links to webpages where they will be able to get involved.”

Appointments Personnel are seeking responses from individuals in Staffordshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire as the report is regionally focused.
