The goal of this project is to identify a strategy that has the potential to significantly reduce turnover in technical positions. In order to complete this task, this report will focus on three distinct aspects that contribute significantly to job satisfaction: financial (e.g. salary), technical (e.g. challenge), and management (e.g. autonomy). If a single, ideal blend of these aspects does not exist for technical employees, it may be possible to make generalizations or to break recommendations down by population segment (e.g. gender, age, industry). In order to keep any conclusions relevant, every attempt will be made to quantify savings (or losses) associated with particular retention strategies, or the lack thereof. The target audience (i.e. key stakeholders) for this project will be technical managers, especially those defining employment strategies or directly supervising technical employees.
