The question for this post is this, how many obstacles do you face time and time again and look for solutions that when the truth is known, you could see the problem and solution in the mirror? The answer is right in front of you and maybe you simply don't want to see or acknowledge what the solution is. (Or the problem).
In this particular instance, I know from experience that if you have a great place, a great culture and an organization that people want to be a part of, they won't leave. Size is NOT the issue. Instead of throwing money at the problem, how about considering this.....if you had a place where they wanted to be, they would not have left. Right or wrong?
When faced with recurring problems or obstacles, it may be time to stop standing with your eyes wide shut and open them to what the problem could be. You (or your organization). Consider that the issues are not with everyone else, i.e, the Millenials are NOT the problem. It is not a comfortable analysis, but one that I have found to lead to the right answer. I first consider myself as the main contributor to the problem rather than someone else. Look inside first, it usually becomes clear.
Open your eyes!
