Abstract

Working paper presenting selected results of research on High Potentials retention and providing practical guidelines for the design of tailor-made incentive systems. Departing from roughly 530 survey responses of High Potentials from two companies, the paper integrates the point of view of employees (quantitative survey) and of management (qualitative interviews). The results confirm the hypothesized connection between incentives, retention and fluctuation in practice.
