More than 50% of employees are actively seeking new opportunities, and two thirds of millennials, the fastest growing segment of the workforce, expect to leave their current job by the end of the year. While executives are concerned about an intensifying war for talent, the innovative, industry-leading organizations won’t need to battle.
