An Integrated Philosophy for the use of Technology to Attract, Develop, and Retain Technical Talent: Perspectives of a Young Professional and Senior Consultants
Despite company dynamics, an integral facet to the growth of both small and international engineering consulting firms is the development of junior staff to fill future leadership roles. International consulting engineering corporations provide young professionals (YPs) in the engineering community an opportunity to participate in unique projects that have substantial capital. Therefore, how may the technological opportunity provided by employment with such corporations be used to attract, develop, and retain technical talent? The authors collaborated on a procedure to combine the perspectives of a YP and senior consultants to develop a philosophical method for the application of technology to recruit, train, and educate YPs through a five-step program that includes initiation, integration, training, performance, and maintenance.
