I’ve written previously about the “Dead Sea effect“, in which your best IT engineers and managers leave over time, leaving behind an IT staff that is slowly becoming less competent and effective. Obviously, to counteract the Dead Sea effect, you want to hold onto your best IT people.
My two latest Baseline columns talk about ways to retain IT staff. The first column talks about making an effort to align your staff’s individual professional goals with your organization’s goals. The second column talks about how to improve your IT staff while encouraging them to stay with your firm.
