What makes a company an attractive employer to work for?

The results of the survey reflect that employees are interested in employers who offer good development opportunities. According to the respondents, the three most highlighted features of attractive employers are the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills, the employer's ability to offer a competitive salary, and flexible working hours that enable the employees to manage their time themselves.

According to Lars Trunin, Head of UK Product at Wise, today's employees are motivated by the opportunity to create value and help people, as well as to develop themselves quickly by working alongside top experts in their field. Lars Trunin emphasized that Wise's mission of the borderless movement of money is backed by a diverse global team of top experts from more than 90 nationalities.

“In addition to the tough challenges to be tackled with the best in their field – whether in New York, London, Tallinn or Tokyo – Wise's inclusive culture and flexible work arrangements have created an inspiring atmosphere. And besides your home office you can also work from another country for 90 days a year,” Lars Trunin adds, revealing the charms of working for Estonia's most desirable employer.
