In September, 4.5 million people in the US quit their job–almost 2 every second. Struggling to keep your top performers? Here are 7 things your employees need from you:

5. They need a boss that cares about them “ Leadership is not about being in charge, it is about taking care of those in your charge. And when we take care of our people, our people will take care of us.” – Simon Sinek
