All employees wanted to be treated with respect, and they do not want to be harassed by anyone for any reason. This trend tops the list and is essential in terms of hiring and retention.
Peaceful Workplace and Schedule Flexibility
A veterinary professional is restricted by the fact that veterinarians work for hours that the brick and mortar practice sets. Sometimes they might have to work some evening hours and on the weekends too as no one can predict when a pet will fall sick. In this situation, there are some jobs within the Animal Health industry that offer more workplace and schedule flexibility.
Technological tools drive this trend within the employment marketplace as they allow employees to work remotely. According to the survey conducted by LinkedIn, here are the benefits of providing workplace flexibility for employees.

Importance of Soft Skills
Soft skills have become more critical for employers. It is one of the requirements candidates demand. According to data collected from LinkedIn, creativity, collaboration, adaptability, persuasion, time management, and adaptability are the soft skills in high demand. Resilience is another important skill that is in short supply these days.
In the past few years, employer branding has become an essential factor in the employment marketplace.
