Everyone wants to be paid well, but money isn't everything when it comes to attracting good employees. If your workplace culture is toxic and unhelpful, people will end up leaving anyway.

Zrinka Lovrencic, managing director for Great Place to Work Institute Australia, made the point succinctly during a recent panel discussion on the future of work: "You can't pay people to love you." To avoid the obvious gags: more specifically, you can't pay people to love working for you.
"The big questions many employers ask are: How do we attract people? How do we make people stay?" Lovrencic said. Creating an environment where people enjoy their job and know they can contribute goes a long way to solve that.
