What is a company's most important asset? Is it the cash in its bank account? Nope, not even close! How about the building or location that a company is located in? Sorry, no dice!

Yes, its employees - especially the front-line employees - are truly a company's most important assets, since they are who the customers relate to day-in and day-out.
Think about the last time one of the company's bright employees was stolen by the competition, or simply resigned out of frustration. Was an investigation launched? Were the root causes identified? Were any measures implemented in order to prevent a recurrence? Or did the loss of yet another experienced Instructor set off no alarm bells? That seems to be the case for Berlitz more and more, recently.
