Why are you not investing in keeping the people that add value?
If you do not who will?

Employees’ expectations have changed. Many people are no longer
satisfied by getting a job to earn money. Employees now interview
companies to find out what the company brings to the table in areas such as
training, benefits, work-life balance and quality of the work environment.

know what skills and education they will gain to help them succeed in future
careers. This underscores the need for employee attraction and retention
strategies. Team building is one such strategy.
