RETAINING THE RIGHT PEOPLE

Experience has shown that often employers are relieved when some employees resign.  What does this say about their ability to choose the right people?

I have made it my mission to continuously learn about people, their behavior and how they can be influenced to drive my clients’ vision.  The challenge however, is once you have found the best possible match to your needs, WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO RETAIN THIS EMPLOYEE FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE.
