Hiring job candidates in a tight labor market often requires sweetening the pot with nonmonetary perks, and new research from global staffing firm Robert Half confirms it.

Forty-three percent of workers surveyed admitted they’ve lost interest in a position when the company wasn’t willing to negotiate elements beyond salary.

Robert Half also surveyed finance executives on the topic, and nearly all (98%) said their companies are open to some back-and-forth with candidates on job offers: 63% are willing to talk about compensation, and many are also prepared to discuss professional development and training reimbursement (52%), benefits (47%) and remote work or scheduling arrangements (45%).
