Inhaltsangabe:Introduction: The main capital of knowledge companies is the knowledge of their employees. More and more staff working in knowledge companies do not work ‘physically’ at the company’s office. Very often, this staff stays at offices provided by the customers. In certain cases, the staff does not see their employers organisation for months and sometimes they do not even have contact with their employer’s organisation or their ‘real’ colleagues for months This is especially true for consultancy and insurance companies. The result is that these kind of knowledge workers tend to develop a bigger commitment and psychological bonding with the customer’s organisation than with the employing company that pays their salary.

The aims and objectives of this research will be investigated from both viewpoints, the management and the workforce. It will be of interest how the different tools used in staff retention strategies work and what their main drivers are. All three companies will be compared regarding these matters. From the feedback received, any [...]
