Mike Petrook, spokesperson for the Chartered Management Institute, noted that money is "obviously" important for paying the bills, but many workers are now looking to make themselves "continually employable" by developing existing skills.
It comes after the Gearing up for Growth report, an employment trends survey conducted by the CBI and Harvey Nash, revealed that a fifth of companies are planning targeted pay rises for key staff, while 42 per cent are planning a below-inflation award for all employees.
However, Mr Petrook said that skills development would be even more likely to satisfy workers.
"There was one piece of research that we did that said that 97 per cent - so a fairly overwhelming majority - wanted to develop transferable skills," he pointed out.
The expert added that staff are looking to gain skills which will serve them well in their future jobs.
