Understanding the Roots of Technical Professionals
Posted

What incentives can I provide to my technical workers to make sure they stay motivated and excited about their job?

High turnover of technical and scientific staff can have a potentially devastating impact on your company’s standing as a market leader.  Here are a few tips to keep your technology professionals from taking the bait of a new job offer from a competitor.

  • Give Them Independence. Resist the temptation to micromanage.  Technology workers enjoy controlling the pace and project content of their work.
  • Challenge Their Skill Set. Provide tough projects that show you appreciate and trust their abilities.
  • Encourage Them to Learn. Provide opportunities for learning, knowledge sharing, and experimenting with new ideas and technologies.
  • Build a “Technical Community.” Create technical peer groups help professionals tie their fields of interest in with the organization.
