From AudioFile

With a voice that's perfect for a business lesson, David Drummond reads a condensed guide to keeping your best employees. The coming talent shortage demands that companies work overtime to keep their best people engaged and committed. The authors' 26 principles and hands-on action steps cover familiar strategies but sound fresh and urgent: Create meaningful and challenging work, provide chances for learning and growth, communicate respect, and initiate honest discussions about work design, satisfaction, and career plans. Theirs is an empowering invitation that everyone take initiative, even in bureaucratic and dysfunctional companies. They offer vital antidotes to typical corporate practice and a timely reminder that it's less expensive to love star performers than to replace them. T.W.

The content of this book is very rich and informative. The format is unreadable, at least for me. Clearly they were going for something, but whatever it was was lost on me.

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.

This is a great book. It explores many different, effective techniques forretaining key talent in the workplace. The book has lots of white space, clean graphics, easy to understand text. I highly recommend it to any supervisor who wants to hone his managerial skills. Great talent will leave if they aren't treated well. This book explains what you can do about deeping your top talent. A must read for the enlightened supervisor.

The latest edition of Love 'Em or Lose 'Em is an essential for every manager's desk. In addition to hundreds of tips, ideas, and stories this edition includes new features like the Top Ten Pushbacks - those things that get in the way of busy managers trying to design and implement effective engagement & retention strategies - and practical ideas for dealing with those obstacles. Whether it is read cover to cover or by topic as a just in time resource, the book is loaded with content relevant to today's workplace.

Format: Paperback
The 4th edition is every bit as relevant today as the first edition. This book should be on the shelf of everyone who supervises others. It contains 26 hands on strategies Manager's can pull from to improve the relationships with their people. Common sense yet not commonly practiced, this addition includes the "top ten pushbacks" or reasons why. Regardless of economic ups and downs, this book withstands the test of time. I highly reccomend it!
