Resigned to a lesser team

Suddenly I am faced with a situation most managers hate to face – resignations! My entire English team is gone (actually, there are only 2 of them but hey, that IS an entire team)! Just 10 mins after I briefed my boss aka Publisher about it , another workhorse in the office gave us a heads up that she may not last till the end of the year. All their reasons for resigning from the publishing industry is the same – tired, exhausted and jaded. Some, were even dragging their feet to work. They also have youth, young age and hunger-for-more in common.

I bet this issue has been addressed by many a managing editors before. Okay, there is only ONE managing editor post, a few senior editors and never-too-many editors (*we publish 300 titles maah!* ah kan…teloh Sin-Cia-Por dah keluar) How do you let the younger ones see the big picture and keep them happpy. How do you let them see there is a track ahead of them, albeit the cone of hierarchy gets smaller and therefore more competitive? I dont know, and this one I really have to figure. Soon, others will feel the same and I want to nip this in the bud if I can. But how?!
