Integrators: What Is The Best Things Your Employer Can Do To Keep You?

We have been having a discussion about non-competes, which is the 'stick' of the employee / employer world, designed to restrict and punish employees who dare leave.

However, what about the 'carrot'? What can integration companies do to motivate their employees to stay? Culture? Money? Training? Flexibility?

I think this would be a good learning opportunity for managers/owners as well as venting / sharing from employees. What do you recommend is most important?
