Salaries are no longer enough to tempt quality employees to top positions, one expert has said.
Yngve Traberg of ClickAJob has spoken out in light of the findings yesterday from Joslin Rowe, indicating the plethora of financial vacancies in Scotland were leading employers to offer increased remuneration packages.
Mr Traberg, chief executive of the firm, has long expected the trend.
"Professional people are starting to think beyond their immediate job prospects towards the rewards they can expect to achieve throughout their careers," he commented.
He added that companies need to look at their working practices when hiring staff.
"By themselves, salary packages are no longer always tempting enough.
"In acquiring motivated staff, employers need to look closer at work relationships and the personal satisfaction to be obtained from working in an inspiring environment," he explained.
According to the data from Joslin Rowe, 2,930 positions were created in the Scottish finance sector over the third quarter of 2007, up from 2,050 last year.
