Also from World at Work, Watson Wyatt announced a new study saying that work life balance is a major driver of retention. However, the study that 80% of employee think work life is important and 40% are looking for jobs is not news. The question is if the 2 factors are related. I can't buy this survey, so if anyone reads it, let me know.
Based on recent posts, I think it's time we had a discussion on the difference between employee attraction, employee satisfaction, employee retention and employee engagement. Look for that in the next few days.
