According to the Austin American-Statesman, “Austin’s boom is far from over.” This good news comes with challenges, though, including recruiting employees to keep up with our region’s growth.
I recently spoke at Texas State University and asked students what they want from an employer. They highlighted professional advancement and a relationship with their supervisor. They never mentioned money, which surprised me.
My takeaway – we can’t read employees’ minds. Providing meaningful employment experiences should start with open communication.
