In this volume I found new insights in the Alas after Alas stories throughout the chapters, tips on recognition (169-182), providing feedback (196-204), Listening (208-214), dealing with generations working together (Pg. 233-246), Manager self test: Retention Enagement Index (255-262), Pushbacks (263-266) and Got More? 268-277). Practical, valuable, and to the point.
This guide and its 26 simple steps are a valuable resource for every level of management! It places importance on engaging and motivating one's team as well as bringing a sense of humanity and respect back into the office. It is a must read for managers who are not only serious about their bottom line, but who also realize that without the engagement and support of their workforce, there is no bottom line. Imagine the boost in employee morale and productivity if just one manager would use the information contained within and heed its advice! During this trying economic time many workers who are "survivors" of company downsizing/re-organizations need to feel and believe that they matter and are not just expendable statistics. In order to succeed and thrive, management must really listen to and support their teams, this book helps them achieve the first crucial steps.
There were only two deficiencies that I saw in the content. One was too much of a veering into PC territory. Sure skin color as a criteria for selecting employees is bad, but it leaves real issues of harder to identify bias off the table, and that is a real shame.
The other is that it doesn't really give a compelling reason to recruit and retain top talent beyond "they are costly to replace."
Other than that, if you want to retain talent and avoid turnover, study this book. Unfortunately it is a study, not a quick read, despite its attempt to format it otherwise.
