More than 90% of people in their 20s answered that they are attracted to companies that offer raises and better benefits. In addition, nearly 90% of people in their 20s say they are more likely to apply for a company with a higher salary. We have received comments such as “Salary is important in maintaining a standard of living” and “I feel that companies with high salaries are growing companies.”
On the other hand, only 17.3% of respondents in their 20s answered that increasing their annual income or salary is their top priority when changing jobs. More than 70% of respondents answered “It’s not a top priority, but it’s important to me,” indicating that although it’s not a top priority, it is an important item. “I think it’s important whether my compensation is commensurate with my abilities and results,” and “I want to assess whether the job content is suitable for me, not just the salary.”
