Ideas may result from curiosity or sheer laziness, either way they are immensely useful.

Why Stay Interviews are Critical in Avoiding Exit Interviews
Jock Purtle
Reducing employee turnover needs to be at the center of your human resources strategy. Not only do high attrition rates lead to lower employee morale—no one likes working at a company that feels like a revolving door—but the cost of recruiting new employees is so high that doing so constantly can quickly run you out of business.

This means it’s not only employees who are being affected; businesses are getting less out of their teams, too.

It’s tough to labor long and hard for an employer, or even a boss, who doesn’t respect you or your work. Maybe your work isn’t matching your bosses expectations, but unless your boss can respectfully articulate what it is about your work that is disappointing him or her, it’s impossible to improve or even please them.
