This book aggregates a plethora of tips and techniques believed - sometimes on the basis of solid research - to boost employee loyalty and organizational productivity. Managers need to learn tactics that will bind employees to them personally and to their companies. Author Nancy S.

  • How to become a manager of choice;
  • How to attract and retain the best employees; and
  • How to provide flextime and mentoring.
