What are the most valued criteria for working in Portugal?

While salary remains the primary concern for professionals, the importance of other factors has been increasing over the past three years. The five most critical criteria when considering employment in Portugal are:

- salary and benefits - 73%

- work-life balance - 66%

- work environment - 65%

- career progression - 61%

- job security - 59%

The research highlights that a third of respondents in Portugal continue to engage in (partial) remote work, showcasing the growing trend towards remote work in professional settings. Among employees with higher education, two in every five opt for remote work, contrasting with less than one in ten among those with lower qualifications.

Equity's importance has been on the rise and now ranks among the top six criteria when selecting an employer. "However, less than half of workers believe their employer fulfills their expectations regarding equity," notes the study. Gen Z workers report encountering such challenges more frequently, partly due to being in the minority.
