As stated elsewhere on this site, the acquisition and retention of high performers is the very lifeblood of every company. So many employers apply a great deal of energy and money attracting the crème de la crème and then devote themselves to defending their investment against all-comers – often also at great expense!
So many factors have a bearing on retention. Well-configured teams, personal development opportunities, working conditions and available resources, intellectual stimulation, invitations to mentor, an élite culture or plain and simple work satisfaction may hold considerably more appeal than long holidays, international travel or above average remuneration.
This site carries myriad references to specialist skills which each have a significant bearing on our clients’ ability to attract and retain first quality performers.
