True leaders are first interested in people, observed the one who is now a professor at HEC Montreal and co-director of the Entrepreneurship, Business Succession and Family Business Unit at HEC Montreal. He argued that getting people to make the decision that best promotes their interests is the essence of leadership. “Whether you are a manager of a large organization, a small team, or even a financial planner who works alone.

According to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, which tracks wage growth in the United States, job changers were paid 7.6% more in April than a year earlier. Employees loyal to their employer were only paid 5.6% more. A little promiscuity from others can help those who choose to stay where they are, observes The Economist. A paper by Nathan Deutscher, a treasury official in Australia, found that higher rates of job switching in Australian local labor markets were associated with faster wage growth, both for workers who switched employment only for those who have not done so. Pay raises and careers are built on people changing jobs. Truly loyal employees tend to get insignificant rewards, the British magazine points out. The famous extra week of vacation for 25 years of service is a good example.

The outdated one-size-fits-all approach is no longer effective, claims Forbes magazine. Employees are increasingly demanding personalized work environments. Whether it is the autonomy to choose the social benefits that suit their particular situation as young parents or adults at the end of their career, or even tailor-made training to increase the productivity of a sector and advancement rather than those obligatory for all and irrelevant. Both of these avenues improve employee satisfaction and productivity. High turnover rates, presenteeism, and toxic work cultures are symptoms of a larger problem: the inability to meet individual needs, Forbes points out. Employers who can deliver personalized experiences have the potential to tap into untapped talent, reduce turnover costs and unlock the full potential of their workforce. The future of work is here, says the American magazine.
