One of the key findings from the article: Stars shine brightest when surrounded by colleagues of equally high quality. One reason:  High-quality colleagues serve as sources of information and smart feedback that can help their teammates perform at their best.

"The more stars a company has, the easier it is to develop and retain such high-caliber individuals," the authors note.
