What do candidates look for other than salary?

Unemployment rates are currently at less than 4%. That’s fantastic for candidates, not so good for those looking to fill vacancies with red hot talent. Companies want to hold on to their good staff, and if they sense unease, may offer financial rewards to keep their top performers in-situ.
