    Promises made are broken
    HR (Human Capital) do not value staff (Capital?) and state can easily be replaced.
    Low salaries and benefits without considering growth in Cost of Living.
    Departments run as fiefdoms with lots of politics. Not run as one cohesive organism for the benefit of DP World. So much potential wasted.

    Evaluate the REAL reasons staff are leaving. Do the explanations HC give make sense? Are management getting truthful reporting?
