How to Solve Your Turnover Problem

To lead a growing business, you need a strong team. But finding and keeping talent is a challenge. Sometimes it seems that good people leave faster than you can hire them. You’ve added all the perks you can think of, but nothing will stop the revolving door. 

Why does staffing have to be so hard?

Our decades of experience have taught us that staffing, like everything else in business, boils down to one thing: vision.  You need to stop looking at the secondary causes of turnover, and address the underlying problem. Either you don’t have a vision, or your team does not understand it.
