Reward and retain employees

When it comes to job satisfaction, there’s no question that pay is important. But as long as employees feel that they are being paid fairly—or a little above average—money is usually not their primary motivator. Organizations that do not have a formal retention strategy can find themselves spending hundreds of thousands of dollars every year recruiting and training new employees to replace the ones who leave.
