If one of the biggest compliments an employee can give a company is to grow within it, one of the sharpest insults an employee can give is to leave for "better opportunities." What's worse is that departing employees are not only a shot to the ego, but also to the pocketbook: It can cost up to 200 percent of their annual salary to replace employees. "Love 'Em or Lose 'Em provides key strategies the companies can use to get their best workers to stay. The book outlines the factors that employees say are most important to them -- meaningful work, opportunities for growth, good bosses, and a sense of group cohesion -- and provides 26 ways to address these concerns and keep workers satisfied. Tips, real-life examples from dozens of organizations, and even an exit memo written by a composite employee to help illustrate what workers believe is important and how to give it to them.
