In today's booming economy, there are more jobs than there are qualified people to fill them. Retaining those qualified employees has become a manager's top priority. Today's managers not only need to make sure their employees are productive, but also need to make sure their employees remain satisfied and motivated-otherwise employees will leave.
According to recent surveys, what really causes employees to stay or drives them away is "the boss," and not money or perks. That means that managers need to learn how to manage in ways that will attract qualified workers and make them want to stay.
