Today’s best workers are demanding more before signing on--and requiring more to stay. How does a company find and hang on to great talent? Competition for skilled employees is fierce! This book provides comprehensive, practical advice to employers to get and keep the people they need. It covers such vital topics as what workers want--including a sense of making a real impact in their jobs and getting learning opportunities; why workers leave--sometimes just because they can (it’s so easy to find a new job), often because they feel undervalued or bored where they are; and what best-practice companies are doing to attract and retain the talent necessary to remain competitive. Expert Diane Arthur discusses: * Both traditional and new strategies, including a huge array of special incentives and perks * Online recruiting via sites like Monster.com or a company’s own Web site * Successful programs from Cisco Systems, Bank of Boston, Eli Lilly, McDonald’s, and dozens of other companies, including many small firms * Competency-based recruiting and interviewing, contingent workers, telecommuting and other alternative work arrangements, future trends, and more.

THE MAPLE PRESSCOMPANY, YORK, PA, To THE HEBREW UNIVERSITY Jerusalem PREFACE DR. WOLFGANG KOHLER Swarthmore College Swarthmore, Pa. DEAR KOHLER This book is the result of a very slow growth. I remember the moment when more than ten years ago it occurred to me that the figures on the blackboard which were to illustrate some problems for a group in psychology might after all be not merely illustrations but representations of real concepts. Much interested in the theory of science, I had already in 1912 as a student defended the thesis against a then fully accepted philo sophical dictum that psychology, dealing with manifolds of coexist ing facts, would be finally forced to use not only the concept of time but that of space too. Knowing something of the general theory of point sets, I felt vaguely that the young mathematical discipline topology might be of some help in making psychology a real science. I began studying topology and making use of its concepts, which soon appeared to me particularly fitted to the specific problems of psychology. However, this undertaking expanded rapidly, forcing me to consider wider and wider fields of psychology and to face more and more involved problems. That is the reason why this book has seen quite a number of unfinished and unpublished editions, and why it does not yet contain the vector psychology. The main diffi culty has not been the mastering of the mathematical problems as uch, at least insofar as the topological problems are concerned. After several attempts to employ the more complicated concepts of topology, I found it both sufficient and more fruitful to refer to the most simple topological concepts only. Vector psychology will, of course, require a moreelaborate mathematical setup and will in all probability even make it-necessary to enter a somewhat undeveloped field of mathematics. But the main difficulty was the dealing with problems which lie, so to say, between psychology and mathematics...
