Are we undervaluing certain positions?’ It gives you a nice opportunity to think about what the trigger might have been—and to ask questions before you lose talent.”
“Why People Quit Their Jobs” is an article primarily addressing the fact that, although the employment relationship has become a transient one, there may be ways to improve or incentivize longevity.
I share it because 1) it points out that attrition is not unavoidable, and 2) it might just help you lessen the need for services like mine, too.
