Amid the great resignation, great perks and good pay are no longer enough 

Today’s organisations are experiencing continuous, unprecedented change. Retaining and attracting talent continues to be a top challenge and critical business success factor. ​ As more permanent changes to how, where and even why we work set in, it is critical for organisations to rethink how they shape employee experience.

The Contribution Effect: Why contributions from both employer and employee is the secret to a committed, resilient & successful workforce from United Minds, Weber Shandwick’s specialist organisational transformation consultancy, offers insight into what drives satisfaction and retention today. While competitive pay and generous perks are valuable to employees, the report reveals that the ability to make a meaningful contribution to the job is as important as fair pay and a safe working environment.


“Given our collective new ‘workplace normal’, we set out to assess the key drivers of employee satisfaction, retention and advocacy amid today’s unprecedented war for talent. We talked to nearly 2,800 office-based, frontline and trade/manufacturing employees in seven countries, and discovered that across this diverse sample, a strong employee experience rests on opportunities for workers to do valued, fulfilling work,” said Kate Bullinger, CEO, United Minds.
