Employers offering roles such as finance jobs in London must invest more time and effort into motivating their members of staff if they are to retain their best workers, an expert has said.
According to Mike Emmott, employee relations adviser at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), this could be crucial for organisations wanting to make sure their workforce is happy in the aftermath of the global economic downturn.
He noted that there is "no single way to do this", but added that the "recipe adopted by Standard Chartered", which involves its employees expecting their boss to "know me, focus me, care about me, inspire me" represents a strong template for all companies.
Mr Emmott was speaking following the publication of research by first direct earlier this week (December 21st 2010), which stated that millions of Britons would be willing to consider changing jobs or even switching careers if this meant they could work under their ideal boss.
