What factors determine how you view your workplace’s culture? Bullhorn, Inc. tackled this very question today when it released the findings of its Workplace DNA Project. Education has the biggest impact: 55 percent of what matters to us ties back to our level of education. The next biggest factor is age (25 percent); followed by gender (15 percent); and geographic location (5 percent).
The Bullhorn Workforce DNA Project is a study that reveals the factors that influence which workplace attributes matter to employees. Workers with higher levels of education seek inspiration, while others are more likely to look for personal enjoyment and rewards. Men tend to seek cutting edge technology, while women cite female leaders more often as desirable workplace traits. Older workers cited earning potential, while younger workers appear to gravitate toward fun, or as Bullhorn listed it, “laugh factory.”
While the greatest variance in the attributes came from those with higher and lower levels of education, one of the most interesting findings of the survey is that despite the rivalry, there is very little difference between the West Coast and the East Coast. In both Boston and San Francisco, workers highlighted work-life balance, constant learning and flexible schedules as the traits that matter most in their workplaces.
