On Veterans Day, I wanted to lead off with this great post by Tim. Definitely worth the read.
Great post on why you should focus your time on creating an environment that encourages candidates to stay rather than trying to block other companies from poaching employees.
Always like when John goes into list mode. Lots of great insights in this article.

Nice post by Ray Anne on why it’s important to do the repetitive work in order to succeed.
