Managers, keep your employees satisfied! If it's as simple as moving them to a spot with a window, because the person likes taking a moment to look at nature, or whether it is allowing coffee at someone's desk, this may be the difference between retaining excellent staff and having them get frustrated with pettiness and identify a new opportunity.

The costs of hiring a replacement employee involve searching, recruiting, training, identifying if the person is going to fit in with current staff, a ramp-up period, potential termination costs for your prior employee, and time the seat will be empty, leading to a  less productive department.

Is it really worth pettiness? Think about the little things you are able to do to keep your employees satisfied. Then do them!
