UK workers rate personal

development over salary

but family and 'a quiet life'

come first

At over 75%, employment levels in the UK

have reached record levels and an increasing

number of employers are giving workers

access to online personal development

programmes. In making this investment, they

hope to improve employee engagement,

productivity and overall retention levels as well

as provide access to learning important soft

skills.

There is plenty of research to demonstrate

that employees are more engaged when

given the chance to learn and develop.

GoodHabitz' 2018 Learning & Development

Trend Report corroborates this and shows

that although access to learning is considered

more important than a higher salary, in the

end, family time and 'the chance to have a

quiet life' come out on top.

Anything for a quiet life

When asked about the 5 things they most

value in life, workers in the study answered:

1st - family (70%); 2nd - a quiet life (51%); 3rd -

free time or hobbies (49%); and 4th - positive

experiences or travel (48%). Being given the

chance to develop personally was ranked 5th,

at 35%. These five preferences are all

considered more important than a high

salary (29%) and an exciting career (22%).

Employers should take note of these

sentiments when designing HR policies and

benefits packages.

Key findings

Knowledge is valued 20% higher

than salary

Having the chance to 'put my talents to good

use' is key to UK employees and 80% of

working adults want the opportunity to

continue learning and challenging

themselves. This is the finding among people

of all educational backgrounds, who agreed

that 'learning is very important'.
