ABSTRACT
The article offers advice on how job shop owners can retain their employees. One research shows that shop owners spend more in hiring rather than retaining the current ones. Most shop owners, often overlook that most employees are looking for a place where they feel valued and that compensation is only a part of that value. It suggests that owners should have their employees involved in decisions and should keep them growing. A pat on the back of one's employees goes a long way.
