Finding & Keeping Great EmployeesUnknown - 1999
"What makes an employee great? According to Harris and Brannick, great employees are those who match the culture of the company they work for and whose personal values align with the organization's core purpose.
Finding & Keeping Great Employees identifies four basic organizational purposes--operational excellence, customer service, unleashing technology, and spirit. By focusing on one of these as their core purpose and using it to drive their selection and retention strategies, organizations will gain a long-term competitive advantage and create a workplace full of self-motivated employees who are highly purpose driven.
