How can you wake up in the morning and be excited to go to work?

Salary increases are not enough
Further research shows that most employers continue to struggle with retention because they rely solely on salary increases and bonuses to prevent turnover.
Clearly, money itself is not the only answer to hold onto your core talent. A good employee retention strategy includes intangibles such as flexibility, relationships, growth potential, and overall corporate culture.
Create and communicate your company purpose

Attract, engage and retain your talent.
