Tackle the problem from root.Are other skilled workers also leaving? Besides, if you think they only reason they are relocating abroad, then you are not being sincere. Poor health facilities, hostile work environment, insecurity are major issues. Poor remuneration is also an issue but NOT the major issue.”
