Getting Back to Basics

Sunday, September 7th, 2008

The American Management Association‘s always interesting and timely podcast series, AMA Edgewise, recently featured an interview with two leading subject matter experts on the topic of employee engagement/retention. The featured interview is with Beverley Kaye, co-author (with Sharon Jordan-Evans) of “Love ‘em or Lose ‘em: Getting Good People to Stay “. In addition, there are some highlights from an earlier interview with Judith Bardwick (author of a number of great books, including “One Foot Out the Door: How to Combat the Psychological Recession That’s Alienating Employees and Hurting American Business“). If you are new to the subject of employee retention, the two will provide you with an excellent introduction. If you are experienced, the podcast provides an excellent “back to basics” refresher. I recommend taking 20 minutes out of your busy day to gain some exposure to the critical insights from these two thought leaders! You can find the podcast here.
