Although it can sometimes be difficult to avoid political discussions with co-workers, there are a large number of people who are not comfortable sharing their political beliefs in the workplace. A recent poll of more than 6,000 participants conducted by Beyond.com found that more than 49% of professionals consider it inappropriate to discuss politics at work. To avoid conflict, it is best to keep your political opinions to yourself at the office.

Although it seems logical that retention would be easier in a down economy, employers should never take their workers for granted. A recent poll of 5,500 professionals conducted by Beyond.com discovered that more than 60 percent of professionals had switched careers at least twice in the last five years, revealing that today’s workers are more willing than ever to make a career transition. Despite the economic recession, employers should continue to develop and enhance their corporate compensation and benefits packages to avoid high turnover. Employers can retain skilled workers by offering competitive salaries, flexible schedules, and making sure individual employees feel challenged and appreciated.
