Brits rejecting job offers because of ‘wrong company culture’ research reveals
Almost half (47%) of the population has rejected a job offer, according to research from hibob, a cloud-based HR and benefits platform. The wrong company culture and the candidate feeling like they wouldn’t get on with their new team is the most popular reason Brits have for not accepting a new role.
Behind ‘company culture not being right’, hibob’s research of 2,000 UK adults found that other reasons job offers are turned down in order of popularity are because ‘the final offer didn’t match the interview promise’ followed by ‘the role not moving their career forward’ and ‘the money not being enough’ coming in fourth place.
hibob’s new research also found:
- London is the most likely region a candidate will reject a job offer (54%) with Wales being the least likely (37%).
- Men are almost 10 per cent more likely to reject a job offer than women (51% for men, 42% for women).
- 16-24 year olds are the age group least likely to reject a job offer (40%) with those 55 and above most likely (50%).
- Wanting more money was most important to respondents from Northern Ireland, with Wales caring the least about monetary gain.
