Key Talent Succession Planning

In this time of “The Great Resignation,” key talent is leaving companies at record levels. Replacing good employees is time consuming and can affect business operations. Leaders are asking, “How can I keep my key talent?”

Why Do People Leave Companies?

There is one number one reason people quit and it’s their boss. When probed further, there are 7 reasons why bosses make employees crazy.
