AgCareers.com conducted a poll to gain insight from job seekers and HR professionals about the job search and recruitment process. Results from the poll are analyzed in the new Insight Survey Reportfor the agricultural and food industries.

Although different questions were posed to job seekers and HR professionals, many were similar in nature. The report compares and contrasts the differences and similarities between the two communities. Job seekers will discover valuable tips to use during their job search and employment by reviewing the responses from HR professionals. Organizations will find helpful tips by reviewing the responses from job seekers, while comparing their thoughts with fellow HR professional respondents.

For instance, polled employers believed that company culture was the most successful way to motivate and retain employees. On the opposite side, a ‘fun’ company culture was at the bottom of candidates’ lists. Job seekers placed highest value on the employers’ reputation in the industry and its products.

  • What skill set is the most valuable for a new employee to possess?
