The Results Having a flexible work schedule led the pack with 17.57% of the vote, while generous/unlimited vacation time and opportunities to work from home/remotely followed in second and third, with 12.83% and 11.85%, respectively.

There’s someone in the office spreading lies about you, and it’s affecting how your work is perceived. It’s time to put an end to office gossip. Here’s how.

    • Top 3 Benefits of Using a Professional Recruiter

      Professional recruiters are in the business of matching employers with the best talent the job market has to offer. Their expertise helps qualified candidates access top jobs. Here are the top three benefits of using professional recruiters. Access to More Jobs Professional recruiters build extensive pools of great companies by constantly contacting potential clients and talking to them about their job seekers.

Instead of feeling like you’re alone, you’ll have a trusted professional to go to for advice and help.
