Employee Morale and Loyalty are Vulnerable as Companies Ask Over-stretched Employees to Do More with Less, Says PwC

PricewaterhouseCoopers signage, London
The latest PricewaterhouseCoopers survey 'Managing Tomorrow's People' explores the work aspirations and expectations over the next decade of 5,000 professionals worldwide. The results show that, while having vastly more responsibility with a salary to match is what the biggest proportion (44%) want from their careers, over a third (36%) now choose better work-life balance as their prime objective, other than salary. The survey finds that people value flexible working arrangements by far the most (39%) followed by bonuses, paid academic training and exposure to advanced networking and social activities. Almost half of the respondents say they want to work for a company whose values match their own. Exactly a third say that they themselves are their own ideal future employer and the remaining 20% want to work for an elite company that employs only the best.
