Profits vs. People: The Key to Reducing Employee Turnover

After writing the post titled: The Key to Reducing Employee Turnover https://relmes.wordpress.com/2008/08/24/the-key-to-reducing-employee-turnover/ I found this quote from Mary Kay Ash founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics http://www.marykay.ca/en/, one of the largest and most successful direct selling organizations in the world:

“Of course I’m concerned about profits and losses. I just don’t give them top priority. If you treat people right, they will work more efficiently and the profits will come in.” – Mary Kay Ash

It sounds like smart advice from a very smart business leader.
