Retention and Sourcing
David Rae has a post up at the Procurements Leaders Site. Find the whole post here It is a good post and worth a read for those interested in sourcing or retention.
In it, he notes that finding good people is hard and retaining them is at crisis proportions. Ah, yes. Sourcing is very much about people, so I appreciate him writing on this aspect.
What I see is that we Westerners complain about people leaving when we are the problem.
We do not lead in a way that gives the company a future. We do not respect workers but rather use fear to keep them in tow. We take no time to clarify for them how they can know they are succeeding. We fail or allow managers under us to fail in very basic tasks as leaders over people and then we complain about the environment.
