In their recent 2017 report on the "State of the American Workplace," Gallup states, "Today, the old ways of running a workplace -- annual reviews, forced rankings, outdated competencies -- don't get the intended results. Leaders must gain scientific insight into employees' evolving wants and needs and learn how to build an exceptional workplace."

More than one in three employees (35%) have changed jobs within the past three years, and 91% of these employees left their company to do so, according to Gallup's State of the American Workplace report. Gallup asked employees how important certain attributes are when considering whether to take a job with a different organization. We found that employees place the greatest importance on a role and an organization that offers them: 1.) the ability to do what they do best 2.) greater work-life balance and better personal well-being 3.) greater stability and job security 4.) a significant increase in income 5.) the opportunity to work for a company with a great brand or reputation
