Why Pay And Benefits Don’t Retain Workers

The Saratoga Institute, which compiles exit-interview results, among other staffing information, reports that 88% of employees voluntarily leave their jobs for other reasons, such as misalignment of mutual expectations, person-job mismatch, insufficient coaching and feedback, perception of poor career-advancement prospects, work-life imbalance, and both distrust toward and low confidence in senior leadership. Still, most managers refuse to acknowledge the "push" factors, preferring to see the "pull" factor of more money as the prime motivator.

    Seems to me it is too easy to higher foreigners who know their place in a race to the bottom. The Perfect Labor Storm is a very soft job market that is hard only for potential employees (maybe not Boomers who got their start before the Bushshit of 1990). Americans have to compete with Mexicans (welfare isn’t an option, unless your name is BanKKK of AmeriKKKa, or Blackwater U.S.S.R.) who in turn have to compete with the Chinese.
