    Thanks for sharing this interesting post.

    My sense is that in a creative function such as this people are looking for opportunities to create something greater than their own job.

    Daniel Pink in his book ‘Drive’ talks about autonomy, mastery and purpose as drivers for people to stay engaged and contribute to the organization.

    Not sure how many agencies spend time to get their staff aligned on the ‘why’ of their existence. Probably, a good point to start and retain staff.

    Really liked the candidate bit you’ve shared. The candidate was bound to feel cheated after not getting the much deserved incentive! If you find a competent employee, the company should ensure that they are well rewarded for their hard work to retain them.

    Making promises you can’t really keep can be so off putting!
