It's definitely true that "one size does not fit all" when it comes to the attraction, engagement and retention of talent. HR professionals understand there are numerous components that satisfy employee needs including some of the basic items in the HR wheelhouse: compensation and benefits. While an organization's 'employer brand' is not solely dependent upon benefit offerings, Total Rewards, and the psychological contract created, continues to be as important as culture, the work environment, and the opportunity to do interesting and meaningful work.
