Attraction and Retention of Talent in the MENA

Attracting talent is an important step that employers need to remain aware of and proactively work on. To what extent MENA companies do a good job at exciting job seekers about their culture and attracting them to apply? And what are the most important on-the-job attributes for professionals?

NGT has recently conducted the ‘Attraction and Retention of Talent in the MENA’ survey to underpin key drivers of company loyalty by outlining areas that attract employees to the workplace and/or company they work for.

Key Findings:

  • The three top drivers of employee attraction in 2023 are salary and compensation (60%), workplace environment (55%) and long-term job security (47%).
  • After being hired, the most important drivers of loyalty for MENA professionals are opportunities for long term career development (40%) and job security (42%).
  • More than 7 in 10 respondents find an employer attractive if they follow good ethics and practices.
  • Over 6 in 10 agree that their company regularly takes feedback from their employees to understand them.
  • 62% would recommend their current workplace to someone looking for a job.
