Good cautionary summary, Chuck! The natives are restless.

Chuck, your comments are right on target. It's time for HR to demonstrate leadership on this issue. As we with "gray hair" know, organizations that tend to view their human capital as a cost versus an investment often lose sight of how their decisions affect the trust and engagement level of their workforce - especially their top performers and those with high demand skills. What many pay and rewards decision makers may be underestimating in this cycle is just how easy a networked world has made it for top performers to activate their job campaign with targeted precision. If a 2.8% salary budget and other rewards are spread around like peanut butter with CPI at 3.2%, then yes, watch all your top performing "Lamborghinis" and "Ferraris" burn rubber as they leave your parking lot. They may have already started their engines.
