Workers demanding Apple-style innovation to stay on board

Filed under: Recruitment General — Stephanie on June 11, 2013

Employers around the globe have been given a clear communication from employees in a Futurestep global study. The firm, owned by Korn/Ferry, specialises in solutions for talent. Those new in IT security jobs, business continuity vacancies or other positions where technology is a big factor may be more demanding than ever over what to expect in the office environment.

Looking at the possible impact from innovative methods of the recruitment, development and engagement of staff, the research into over 4,000 employees in skilled positions, from various countries, revealed that close to half are perfectly prepared to leave a job – even when they are content in the role – if it seems that innovation promises have not been kept.

Futurestep CEO Byrne Mulrooney said:

“The idea of innovation clearly sparks the imagination of today’s professionals. Workers define innovation as three things; change, improvement and forward thinking, and they’re looking for employers to demonstrate all three of those from the very first time they come into contact.”

Around 44 per cent of those who were surveyed said they will likely look for a different role should innovation not be demonstrated. Pressure is on employers to show innovation quickly; according to the participants, they have on average of only six months in which they can prove they are serious with their promise to implement innovation in development and engagement. A further 40 per cent said that they would feel negative about a company should they experience ‘phantom innovation’.
