Replying to LO11997 --

There has been some discussing of retaining knowledge workers. Some have
implied that orgs need to be more aware of peoples' needs, and that
knowledge workers have no problem leaving and finding better jobs.

The "Economist" had an article about 4 months ago in wh)h they said that
employee-initiated departure from companies is at a 20 year low. This may
imply many things. It may be that white collar people are happy in their
jobs, scared to change, orperhaps that good alternatives are hard to find.
