Love 'Em or Lose 'Em

Love 'Em or Lose 'Em
Getting Good People to Stay

In Love 'Em or Lose 'Em, the authors persuasively argue that the ever-increasing "race for talent" can be effectively won only by those who adopt a mindset and behaviors that truly support their employees.

They then describe how to do so, with a focus on the important role that managers play.

Based on research with 18,000 people who have job longevity, the authors identified five top "stay factors" such as opportunity for growth and pay equity. Using these factors, they outline dozens of easy-to-implement strategies for increasing engagement and retention.

Wall Street Journal Bestseller!

The book focuses on the practical, suggesting that managers take the initiative by telling their talented employees how much they’re valued and asking the question, “What will keep you?” Armed with this invaluable information, managers can then customize their retention strategies to meet each valuable employee’s needs.

Love 'Em or Lose 'Em uses hands-on exercises and stories of others' failures and successes to get its message across.
