Employee Retention, Be Careful What You Ask For

The idea that great people should be retained in their jobs for a long time is the exact opposite of growth and innovation. In Retaining Water, John Sumser opens this week's Employee Retention double feature by illustrating how a highly successful retention system has backfired on the U.S. Federal Government. In his follow up piece, Retaining Walls, John explores the risks of retention programs in greater depth.

Heather Bussing writes Unintended Employees on the growing issues surrounding contractor and employee status, and John Sumser closes the issue with Five Links: Staying with the New and a review of last week's Tapestry Conference. Enjoy.
