Currently, 1 in 4 employees are considering leaving their job. The world of work has changed and companies who are able to adapt to the new corporate landscape will be those who attract the talent. The key to competing in a world where demand far outweighs the pool of available talent is creating a work environment where employees want to work and stay. Although we cannot motivate a person directly, we can create a work environment that they find highly motivating.
