e-biz in brief

How can you successfully attract and retain your next web
developer? Which benefits package will ensure your e-business manager never
leaves you? The Arthur Andersen online survey aims to answer all these
questions, as well as investigate more contemporary issues such as duvet days,
concierge services for staff and taking a dog to work. The purpose of the
survey is to help companies understand what really matters to the new economy’s
workforce. HR managers can register their company to participate in the survey
at the Arthur Andersen website and in doing so ensure a free copy of the
report’s results in advance of its wider distribution (cost to non-participants
£600). The survey runs until 31 March. http://www.arthuranderson.com/dotcomp
