100% agreed and it's also true for trying to get some other things changed as well.

I agree that if you have a great work environment with competitive pay your staff will stay put, but how many of us at the department supervisory/manager level can actually make the final decision concerning salary and pay scales for a position.  I suspect that most of us, including myself, can only make well documented pleas for salary increases. 
When it comes to spending money, most institutions are reactive rather than proactive.  If salaries are low, then you may have to lose a valuable tech before you can make the point that salaries need to be increased.  
It may be a tough pill to swallow, but I am more than willing to let my folk listen to any pitchman that is trying to get their ear. Any tech worth his/her salt, knows that these calls are out there, so why try to hide it. If a tech can better themselves by a job change, then who am I to stand in their way.  We generally discuss these in departmental meetings and I tell techs that I get frequent calls from recruiters and if they would like to correspond with them, may I give the recruiter their personal contact info.  I ask in return, that if they do go elsewhere for a better salary, that they please give me the info, so I can use it to help increase the salary of those who remain. This keeps communication up front, honest, and open and I think in the long run, helps to quell murmuring about low salaries which are beyond my control as a supervisor.
Just another viewpoint.  Terri

I think if you have a great work environment with competitve pay then you have nothing to worry about. Your staff will stay put.
