I had a great time speaking to Ben O’Shea on The West Australian‘s The West Live show about what really drives people to change jobs.

Like in all booms, companies within WA are losing great people for the allure of a high pay packet working in a FIFO environment. Can leaders do anything to stop this from happening (spoiler alert – yes!).

Why do people look for other roles (spoiler alert – despite what most leaders think, it’s rarely about money)?

What do you do if you lose someone that you don’t want to lose? Can you entice them back (spoiler alert – statistically, yes, 20% of the time).

These tips are great not only for companies in WA losing workers to FIFO, but for anyone who is losing (or afraid of losing) great people to the Great Resignation!
