Employee retention

“Our global survey showed that executives rate “retention and engagement” their No. 2 priority. A focus solely on retention, however, may be misplaced. Companies should shift from strategies to “hold people here” to “attracting and engaging people” through measures that build commitment, align employee goals and experience with corporate purpose, and provide engaging work and a culture of development and growth.” (excerpted from, Beyond Retention, by Cathy Benko, Robin Erickson, John Hagel & Jungle Wong)
