Employers looking to hang onto their workers should look beyond remuneration and even personal rapport, a new survey has found.

A study by Facebook found that employees are most likely to change jobs if they feel that their work is unfulfilling – even if they have a strong working relationship with management and are performing well in their role.

Conversely, workers who feel they are able to use their strengths frequently and are gaining valued career experience are more likely to stay put.

These figures are supported by research from HR thinktank Reventure, which found that almost three-quarters (72 per cent) of Australians look for purpose and meaning in their work.
