This week I revisited a great friend, Amelia Wilcox. Amelia is the Utah-based founder of Incorporate Massage who collaborated with me a year ago on this article: 6 Ways to Increase Employee Morale and Performance Without Giving a Raise.
More than 55,000 readers have enjoyed that article so far. Since our collaboration I’ve become a client of her business (much to my employees’ delight). And we finally met in person, over a girls-in-entrepreneurship lunch.
Clearly the battle for top talent is bigger than ever. When we met, I asked Wilcox for an update on the trends she’s seeing today. Here’s what she said.
