Knowledge Workers - Talent is not patient, and it is not faithful

Knowledge workers are impatient as great programmers. They are hard to replace and train and still some corporations are not proactive about it. It might not be costly enough?
Of course HR, managers nor VPs aren't struggling to compensate critical components when some of them leave but underlying teams have to. Those decision makers have to remember that they aren't free lunch and mismanagement of knowledge workers have some consequences.
Better management of Knowledge Workers lead to much more productive teams and low turn over but the opposite could cause your decline. What's so hard about creating a win/win approach instead of a loose/loose approach that so many companies seems to fall in. Maybe a generation clash? or simply missing competencies.
