employee retention

i have been told that the library system which currently employees me has difficulty retaining good employees. hmmm, wonder why that could be? i am going to throw this one out there ... it probably isn't a good idea to tell young industrious hard-workers that they most likely will be fired. also it probably isn't a good idea to make such statements to said young industrious hard-workers the day before they are to go to a national library conference where they can strut their stuff and be offered better jobs.
so here i am in philly. i have just checked into my lovely hotel and lo and behold ... there is free internet access! free internet! free internet! i love it, i love it!
so things are good ... i received an email from a higher up regarding "the situation" and he wants to meet next week. i have a schmoozing event to go to tonight, then afterwards i have a videogame extravaganza event to go to so that i may learn about what the "kids" are into these days. then tomorrow i will meet with the members of the YALSA (young adult library services association) committee i am on and i will schmooze further.
the world is my oyster. it's all a matter of who will make me the best offer.

I can't wait to hear about the meeting next week!

Yes, free internet is good. Someone should tell Starbucks this.
