A recent survey conducted by the Huntress Group, has found that candidates are taking into consideration not only the reputation but also how secure the organisation is, a lot earlier in their application process than a few years ago.
- 47% said they would always check to see if a company is financially stable before working for them.
- 45% would be most concerned if a company has changed its name a number of times.
- 59% would think carefully before working for a company with an unfavourable Credit Report.
- Over half would not consider a company with a high turnover of senior management, in particular, directors.
Almost a third surveyed have worked for a company that has closed down since they left, which is reflected in the top three factors when choosing the next career move:
- Job satisfaction
- Company stability
- Proximity to home
