ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of investing in motivating staff on sectors with high turnover rates in Great Britain. However, the author points out that many employers are unwilling to invest in motivational benefits for staff working in call centers, retailers and factories. He also suggests that putting benefits in place that are designed to motivate and retain staff is one of the best solutions.
