If that's true, is that kind of contentment (or stagnation, to take a less rosy view of it) something that an organization would want to encourage?

This dovetails with an article I read a while back on DailyWTF about the Cravath approach to employment (http://thedailywtf.com/Articles/Up-or-Out-Solving-the-IT-Turnover-Crisis.aspx). Basically, the idea is that people should always be moving up or out. It seems to be predicated on the notion that both people and the circumstances they're in change, and that it's important to have people move on to new challenges once they've made their mark rather than entrenching themselves and preventing new ideas and approaches from being introduced.
