Employee Engagement in the 100 Top Employers

We found Pareto’s blog, The 2 things that the 100 top employers share, well worth a read.
Included were a couple of snippets worth thinking over: 89% of employees felt it was important for their employers to support their learning and development, while 66% went so far as to say they valued learning over monetary increases.
