What motivates the expert employees or “technical professionals” in your organization – the market researchers, software developers, product designers, accountants, mathematicians, process engineers, physical therapists, psychologists, behavioral counselors, quality control statisticians, registered nurses, and lab technicians? How do HR professionals retain expert employees that are hard to replace?
