What's more important to you?  Your workplace environment or how much you make?

A survey of 410 workers in Missoula  showed a good “work environment” as a higher priority than their wage.

The stats are from LC Staffing, a local company that is trying to help employers attract and retain workers.

Missoula County’s unemployment rate is 2.8%.  That's better than the statewide average of 3.7%. Because workers have more choices than usual, companies are getting creative to attract and retain talent - more so than just increasing wages.

The survey showed 25% stated wage was one of their main considerations when looking for a job.  But even more, 35% listed “work environment” as a more important factor.

The survey includes other parts of Montana and wasn't limited to Missoula.  Read more about it HERE!
