    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take employee concerns into account; there is a reason there is so much turnover, especially in the HR department.
    Very little promotion from within, even when it's well deserved.
    Initiatives are started but never followed through.
    Yes, you compensate your people well, but at what cost? You continue to lose strong employees and soon, given your reputation within the Montreal job maker, it will be tough to keep replacing them
