How to fail keeping your companies talent

Whether it’s a high-profile tech company like Yahoo!, or a more established conglomerate like GE or Home Depot, large companies have a hard time keeping their best and brightest in house. Recently, GigaOM discussed the troubles at Yahoo! with a flat stock price, vested options for some of their best people, and the apparent free flow of VC dollars luring away some of their best people to do the start-up thing again.

Forbes just released their TOP10-List of “FAIL” in the sense of keeping talent:

1. Big Company Bureaucracy

2. Failing to Find a Project for the Talent that Ignites Their Passion

3. Poor Annual Performance Reviews

4. No Discussion around Career Development

5. Shifting Whims/Strategic Priorities

6. Lack of Accountability and/or telling them how to do their Jobs

7. Top Talent likes other Top Talent

8. The Missing Vision Thing

9. Lack of Open-Mindedness.

10. Who’s the Boss?
