“People spend a lot of time at work and they want an environment in which they can thrive,” reads the report. “As a result, companies are increasingly emphasizing certain aspects that, when combined, offer a top-notch employee experience, including compensation and benefits, work-life balance, culture, management, and job security and advancement.”

All of these factors are being taken into account, according to Indeed, when job seekers are looking for their next workplace. They found that 90% of job seekers in Canada read reviews about a prospective employer before forming an opinion about them.
