Jim - As an old HR weenie who led HR organizations big and small, I've never thrown money at a problem, unless money WAS the problem. It's a bad answer for a host of reasons, not the least of which is that it never works. If money is the problem, it can be a symptom of a dysfunctional comp system. Regardless, as you astutely point out, thorough investigation by competent people will likely expose the issue(s) that need to be addressed.

Thanks for the confirmation, John. As often stated here, money is the most expensive solution and typically the wrong one, anyway. Even if it truly solves one problem, it usually creates another.
