jbond, 

Yes, there is a way. If everyone starts changing thinking they can make a difference soon you start seeing that difference. Remember that Ghandi once said: Be the change you want to see in the world. 

If one by one everyone starts changing in a company, at the end of the day the whole company will see the benefit. :) Can you see?

Susan - It would be wonderful if there was a way to make a difference and make a change. I wish there was a way to start making a change because it takes more then 1 or 2 individuals.

jbond, 

"Not being happy with what they have is more than just a company problem. It is a world problem."

Exactly. That is how it is. And it's quite sad because it contributes to no one's happiness. Companies are just an extension, a reflection of society so you can't expect companies to be better if society doesn't change as a whole, starting for every individual who is part of it.

Unfortunately too many companies look only at the current job at hand and not at the other talents of their employees. Sometimes employees can be an asset in many areas.

@Himanshugupta, keeping talent is tough because it is a complex recipe and one that shifts from generation to generation and from career level to career level. Newbies want mentoring, for example, while mid-management want a career path they can see and a chance to work on cool and innovative stuff, for example. I think a rotational program might be useful, but organizatoins also need to listen to employees. Ask what would be meaningful. I suspect that doesn't happen as often as it should.

@jbond: That is the common scenario in many cases. Im not sure why they cant be happy with what they have.
