eFC logo

Nationwide, two out of five workers would leave their current job if the right opportunity came along. Given the current climate, that's kind of surprising, but it's worrying employers, and causing many to think about - wait for it - retention. Even businesses who've had layoffs are considering how to keep hold of their top performers, the people they're counting on to help them weather the downturn. The report, which comes from Taleo, a producer of staffing-management software, underscores why job performance is an important strategy not only for keeping your job, but for advancing, as well.
