Why use ComparJobs?

Keep your best employees longer and improve your turnover rate

ComparJobs is a recruitment tool designed to help companies attract and select motivated, loyal employees.

There was a time when workers spent most of their careers with one employer. Those days are clearly over; people now change employers several times in their professional lives. For the new generation of workers, the concept of company loyalty has all but disappeared. These young people are constantly seeking to improve their professional lot by finding better jobs. This approach is made easier by all the new information technologies, which provide easy access to new job opportunities.

That being said, it is still possible to improve staff retention and turnover rate by starting at the source, or in other words, from the beginning of the recruitment process. ComparJobs carefully considered the factors that lead employees to either keep their jobs or look elsewhere. Our research allowed us to identify nine factors that can cause employees to become dissatisfied and seek other employment opportunities:

  • Salary:
  • What are the employee’s salary expectations? Are they satisfied with their salary, or will they feel the need to see if other employers are offering more?

  • Vacation and benefits:
  • Do you know your employee’s expectations with respect to vacation and other benefits? Small differences can often make an employee decide to work for another employer. Plus, this is an easily adjustable factor that can contribute to the retention of valuable resources at a low cost.

  • Schedules:
  • Scheduling has become more important in retaining staff as employees seek more flexibility in their search for a good work-life balance. It is therefore important to invest in employees whose availabilities align with your needs.

  • Distance and travel time:
  • An employee might be very satisfied with their schedule, but what about their travel time to and from the job? Is traffic causing them to be stressed? Does their travel time seem interminable? In short, unless they are willing to relocate, employees will usually prefer a job that is closer to home.

  • Values of the immediate supervisor:
  • An employee might be very satisfied with their schedule, but what about their travel time to and from the job? Is traffic causing them to be stressed? Does their travel time seem interminable? In short, unless they are willing to relocate, employees will usually prefer a job that is closer to home.

  • Affinities with coworkers:
  • The composition of your team can be a leading factor in successful staff retention. More than ever, workers develop friendships with their colleagues. A good team can be a determining factor in an employee's decision to stay longer. Conversely, an employee who doesn’t feel welcome in your team may look elsewhere to find a better fit.

  • Work environment:
  • Do your employees feel good about the work environment? People have different preferences as to what makes them comfortable in their workspace and environs. With all the hours spent at work, the work space also becomes a living space. As a result, it is important to choose people who will be comfortable in your physical environment.

  • Types of tasks:
  • Do your employees feel good about the work environment? People have different preferences as to what makes them comfortable in their workspace and environs. With all the hours spent at work, the work space also becomes a living space. As a result, it is important to choose people who will be comfortable in your physical environment.

  • Professional challenges:
  • Every worker accumulates a wealth of skills, knowledge and experience that allows them to do their job. But sometimes employees feel underutilized and want to contribute more. It therefore becomes important to recruit employees that will be stimulated by the challenges the position offers.


ComparJobs's approach is simple, and centres on the careful consideration of these nine criteria of job satisfaction before the hiring process begins. Each person necessarily has expectations and requirements with respect to these criteria. This makes it possible to ascertain what a potential employee is looking for BEFORE hiring and thus reduce the chance of dissatisfaction emerging at a later point.

This is exactly the role of ComparJobs: to verify at the time of application the degree of compatibility between a job seeker and an employer, thus identifying any potential sources of dissatisfaction. By hiring employees that will be more content, the chances that they will feel the need to look for a job elsewhere are reduced. This ultimately improves staff retention and reduces turnover.
