This afternoon I participated in a training seminar via the Internet. The session was hosted by Danny Cahill who I think is one of the best trainers in Executive Recruitment. During the session he talked about a poll taken over the decades asking candidates who switched jobs why they made a move. The most common answer/corresponding year are listed below:
1979 For an increase in pay.
1989 Positional Advancement.
Every year since 1999 the most common answer was still “boredom”.
What does that mean for you? Keep your employees motivated and challenged; and this does not mean longer hours or more work. It does mean including them in exciting projects and expansion plans. Don’t loose your employee’s to boredom!
