What We Are Reading Now

“The Roots of the Great Resignation Stretch Back a Decade”, Says Wharton’s Adam Grant. “The pandemic just poured gasoline on a trend that had been slowly building for years.” (inc.)
Dr. Jill Perry-Smith asks: “You’ve Built a Racially Diverse Team. But Have You Built an Inclusive Culture” (Harvard Business Review)
Start developing the employment value proposition by asking the central question, “What would we say or do to attract and retain people if we had to pay 20 percent below market?” (Tandehill/WorldatWork)

We believe pay should provide employees with a fair return on their investment of time, skills and energy, but ideally, it should not provide them with the fundamental reason they come to work each day.
