Retaining Your Best Employees

Listen to this podcast

Hi everyone! This is yours truly, Anita Campbell. Welcome to Small Business Trends radio today. I'm so glad you could be with us. The topic of today's show is "Six Secrets to Retaining your Best Employees." In just a few minutes I'll be introducing Brian Lowenthal of the Benchmark Partners. He is our featured guest today and he's going to be explaining how to make sure your top talent doesn't go to work for your competitor. He says that his research and study has shown that Six Dimensions are the key to retaining your best employees.

And by the way, you don't have to take notes and write any of this down. Over at the podcast site, www.smbtrendwire.com, we will have all of these listed in a post, and you can refer over to that post for all of the trend watching secrets. But my first secret is, I subscribe to magazines. I subscribe to over two dozen business magazines. Now some of the magazines on my reading stack are Wired magazine, Business 2.0, Inc., Information Week, and Forbes magazine. These are not all of the magazines, obviously, but these are the ones that I keep coming back to.
