Dilemma on people development

More and more organizations try to retain their most valuable asset, people, since they have fundamental knowledge that act as competitive advantage to help organization strive for excellence. Yet, for people who have that particular knowledge, it becomes their unique selling point for management to ask salary increasing and even promotion at year-end. It’s quite dilemmatic problem for organizations that on the one side, they want to develop people into certain level that provide expertise and competitive edge that help transform organization into better one. However, on the other hand, people tend to look better option, in this case other organization that can provide their certain needs, for instance; monetary factors, benefits and so on. Thus, what approach should organization do? Impose contract agreement that avoids those people to threat our organization as stepping-stone? Limit training and education from development program? Again, if I may recall my memory from my previous company. Organization has spent huge investment and time to develop a person in order to make her expert on particular field that expect her to share and transfer valuable knowledge she got from training to other people in organization. However, she decided to resign and leave company to purse other career as top management in other organization. What a mess!!! How come, companies can life with this kind of situation? That lady, gain huge advantages and also knowledge from my company to fulfill her needs without considering ethical factors.
