Qualified talent has become difficult not only to recruit, but also to retain due to a job market with more open positions than people to fill them. The possibility that a more rewarding career opportunity is out there is often too compelling for even the most tenured and loyal employee. That's why employers need to make the extra effort to keep their best talent engaged, nurture staff's professional and personal growth, and establish a workplace culture that cannot be found anywhere else.21 January 2020
