Train people well enough so they can leave. Treat them well enough so they don’t want to

Amazon trains it’s employees for jobs that have no relevance to Amazon as a company – in health, transportation, among others. Amazon does it because it knows that the opportunity to grow is of paramount importance to it’s employees.

People often ask me which company should they work for – big or small, a start-up or a big finance multinational.

I tell them the size of the company does not matter. The size of it’s commitment to it’s people does.

Do not choose a company, or a job. Choose a boss. The boss that supports you, trusts you, believes in you and gives you opportunity to grow will make a huge difference for your career.
