Are your good employees leaving! You must find out why?
It’s tough to hold on to good employees, but it shouldn’t be. Most of the mistakes that companies make are easily avoided. When you do make mistakes, your best employees are the first to go, because they have the most options.
1. They make a lot of unnecessary rules.
Companies need to have rules—that’s a given—but they don’t have to be shortsighted at creating an order.

When good employees feel like big brother is watching, they’ll find someplace else to work.

7 Interview Questions To Assess A Cultural Fit.
A few years ago, my client interviewed a candidate for an engineering position. The candidate passed all their technical interview questions with flying colors. As a result, he was hired.

The only answer I can come up with is "Yes".
Because in doing so, we prevent limiting the organization to the level of our own ability—and grow the capabilities of our companies. We become more likely to listen to their thoughts and ideas, and this is the best way to expand on our own knowledge and build the strength of the company.
