  • Why Retention Will Be The Biggest Talent Challenge Of 2017
    Forbes
    Why you should read it: Because "an over-emphasis on talent attraction and hiring without equal emphasis on development and retention will create problems for companies in the new year." Is employee retention a high priority for 2017? If not, "you may find yourself in a cycle of vacancies that you can’t recruit your way out of in the new year."
