The Power of the Schedule.

When I was a junior manager, a mentor of mine told me that if we wanted to attract the best talent we had to gain a reputation as the best operators, with the best culture. And, if we want to retain talent, I (personally) had to appreciate the power of the schedule and to always give people what they needed, and always effort to give them what they wanted.

It was his contention, that understanding, and scheduling around the complexities of people's personal lives, knowing how scheduling (over wage) determined paycheck amounts, and affording time off whenever it was requested/needed was the magic (and required skill of managers) that built the business.

"Conventional wisdom notes that it’s more expensive to recruit and onboard new employees than to retain existing high-performing employees."

If this is commonly understood, why is there such a disproportionate investment of time, funds, and resources focused on recruitment vs retention?

Which has better ROI or more value?
