Latest survey results suggest that employees, leaders and managers have an aligned view on what makes an Employer of Choice.

‘Recognition and rewards for work’  and ‘Invests in the learning and development of its people’ tops the list of Employer of Choice factors for employees, managers and leaders.

‘Employer of Choice’ is a term often used to describe organisations that are the preferred or most desired to work for in an industry or sector. Through the Leadership Employment and Direction (L.E.A.D.)
