"Toffler-esque", wondering about IT churn?

An interesting look at employee churn, and very apt in the IT arena, methinks:

"Employees – especially the most talented ones – are not “dating around” and moving from place to place in search of the Perfect Company at which they can grow old and retire at. They’ve already aced the first four rungs of Maslow’s hierarchy and are in search of self-actualization: the instinctual need of humans to make the most of their abilities and to strive to be the best they can."

Thanks Wade. All we have to worry about now is the predictions of Malthus.

Interesting piece. Sounds about right.

I wouldn't worry too much about Malthus. We probably have more to fear from farting cows.

And if the churn turns fast enough a lot of these guys will just fall off and vanish down the plughole.

Keep the vacancies coming.
