Knowledge Worker Salary.
Is money the best tool for attracting and retaining the best knowledge workers? Or, is there a formula for finding what is too little, too much or what is just right, like porridge?Some employers are getting creative in order to hold on to key employees. As the job market improves, competition for the best talent ramps up.
Top programmers and code writers are offered lavish salaries, cars, housing allowances, club memberships, day care and other services that were once only found at resorts and five star hotels. It sounds great at first, but there is always the law of unintended consequences.
