Engaging Your High-Potential Employees

… 6 Ways to Attract and Retain

The Corporate Executive Board, a leading research company, reports that high-potential employees (A Players) are becoming increasingly dis-engaged and are readying themselves to seek new job opportunities.

I saw this play out just this week.  My daughter is a CPA in New York and a young career professional.   An executive recruiter called her “out of the blue” and within a week, she had a better job with an approximate 40% increase in salary.  And… better benefits.  And… she was not even actively looking for a new job!   Had she been completely engaged, she would not have bothered with the interview.   Perhaps she would not have returned the recruiter’s call.
