One out of every five workers quits during the year. Believe it or not, pay isn't the number one reason. It's all about who we are. Some prefer praise to a raise. Others want better retirement packages and more respect. Companies spend thousands to find the right employee. Why not commit more resources and effort to keep employees happy, productive and on the payroll? We'll talk about what workers really want Friday morning on The Sound of Ideas.
