Earlier this month, Dallas Mavericks owner and businessman Mark Cuban took to his blog to discuss the changing environment in the NBA, especially relating to players’ choices if and when to leave one team for another.

“Some feel that the player movement we have seen, particularly players asking to be traded or leaving teams that have the ability to pay them more money is a problem,” Cuban wrote. “I don’t. I think it is exactly what we should expect and it reflects what is happening in the job market across industries in our country.”

Now, when college students graduate, Cuban wrote, they aren’t looking for one company to spend the rest of their lives at. They’re looking for a first job, which will lead them to more opportunities.

This means employers both in and out of the NBA have to change how they treat employees.

Cuban dropped this truth bomb about half-way through his blog post:

“Now the onus is on employers to keep their best employees happy.”

That’s a game changer. Inc. commented on Cuban’s blog post and that one sentence, writing it had “profound implications.”

The Inc. article went on to further discuss one major way employers can keep their employees’ best interests in mind: focus on happiness. Read the rest of that article and the tips included online here.
