    Good insights Ross. Yes, these things are very hard to do, but also critical to business success. Attracting the right talent for your business is vital and cultural fit plays a big part in this - skills and knowledge are great, but attitude (alignment with the business purpose, belief in the product/service, being part of the team etc.)is just as important. Once you have the right people, then as you say, keeping them motivated and engaged is an on-going challenge. But it is worth putting in the effort to understand employees' motivations, because they are key to business performance.
