[1]What do employees want? Joel Spolsky says that what they most want is to grow, to learn [2]. Robert Half once showed that what they want is a stable job, and what would cause them to leave their jobs is better pay and benefits [3].

The latest such query comes from Hogan Assessments, which asked 941 people, “”What do you consider most important in a job? Rank your priorities from 1 to 10, with one being most important.”

The priorities they could choose from: benefits; interesting/meaningful work; office hours/location; opportunity for advancement; relationships; responsibility/control of own work; salary; job security; training, learning, and development; working conditions.

This time around, at least, interesting/meaningful work was the big winner — as the graphic shows.
