Engineers are the employees most likely to quit

Engineers are poached more than any other type of talent, and there’s also a big shortage of great candidates in the talent market. While engineers jump jobs for many reasons - poor managers, limited L&D opportunities, and uncompetitive salaries - these factors are often avoidable from the start.
