Is it salaries, incentive pay and other perks?
Studies show, not if you’re in a knowledge/creative field.
Rather, it’s the self-determinization concept.
3 main drivers to this:
- Autonomy – having a say and being provided the opportunity to collaborate in the what, how, where and when
- Competence – it’s human nature to have a desire to learn, grow, and make progress in gaining additional skills
- Relatedness – knowing who you’re helping and what you’re doing is going to help
Hopefully, you’re offered some level of these at your current positiion.
These are also 3 good discussion points to get more understanding around during the interview process.
