Quantitative analysis of non-financial motivators and job satisfaction of information technology professionals

by Mieszczak, Gina L., D.B.A., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2013, 166 pages; 3594708

Abstract:

Organizations depend extensively on Information Technology professionals to drive and deliver technology solutions quickly, efficiently, and effectively to achieve business goals and profitability. It has been demonstrated that professionals with experience specific to the company are valuable assets, and their departure puts technology projects at risk. When these individuals leave, they depart with valuable experience in regards to business processes, hardware and software that is worth more than the monetary value of salary and benefits alone. It is imperative that management recognize the contributions of these professionals and the motivational reasons of why they leave. Recognition of this importance can help develop ways to keep turnover low. Retention of proven key professionals benefits future technology projects and long-term organizational goals. In a time period where competition is fierce and successful technology projects are crucial to profitability, experienced motivated technology professionals are critical to success.
