Attracting and, perhaps even more importantly, retaining top-notch employees has always been one of the key challenges facing employers. Add in the additional complexities global mobility, highly specialized skill sets, a booming economy and the increased importance many employees place on job satisfaction and work-life-balance and that task becomes even more daunting. While compensation is not the number one factor in attracting and retaining the best and the brightest, most HR experts identify it as one of the top five.
