Having Fuel50 or a talent mobility [platform], and investing in ways for people to think about their future inside a company during these really hard times is a great salve to this pain… The idea of a platform that isn’t a turn it on, turn it off – [rather] it’s always on and gives people somewhere to go to think about their future.”
