Why You Shouldn’t Hang Onto All of Your Talent

We’ve become so obsessed with hanging onto talent at all cost that we forget that there is a price to pay when no one leaves. If no one ever departs, then you are breathing your own exhaust. Attrition can be healthy for an organization. When you bring new people into the organization, you allow fresh air in. Fresh ideas begin to percolate, and workers are re-energized.

Think about this the next time you are tempted to convince an employee that leaving is not in their best interest—especially when you know deep down inside that you are telling them this because their departure is not in your best interest. Then do the right thing. Encourage them to consider all their options.

    Well said! Sometimes it is necessary to pay an extraordinary bonus to an employee so that he doesn’t have a thought to leave the company. Loyalty leadership is very important in the modern world.
