Assess Systems is good at helping you hire good people. I mean really good. But once you’ve got them signed on as a new employee, it’s up to you to make sure your company is so great that they stick with it.

Now, everyone knows that money is a huge motivator (I mean why do people have jobs in the first place?). And while that may be one of the main reasons your best hires are sticking around, we thought there might be more to the story.

We asked 751 restaurant employees an open-ended question about what motivated them to stay at their job, and (surprise, surprise!) 16% of them said they stayed because they like having money.
