Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize employees needs and help them grow professionally. Respect and reward experienced employees accordingly. Spend time to listen to them and understand what their needs are. Train managers to treat people with more respect and values. Think of a way how to retain experienced employees, otherwise they're going to keep leaving.
