Job seekers and job holders alike tend to think they’re National Football League free-agents when it comes to getting and keeping jobs in this low unemployment era. Thus, corporations can find it very tempting to act like football teams - throw money at recruits, throw money at employees with wanderlust - and then throw up their hands when people leave. No need for all that, say authors Jim Harris and Joan Brannick. Finding and keeping great employees isn’t about winning the bidding, it’s about getting to the source of employee alienation and rebuilding connections among people, their jobs, their lives and your company. getAbstract recommends this book to employees, especially unhappy ones, and to human resources professionals of all stripes, from recruiters to compensation analysts to development specialists, and even football coaches.
