Consistently Reward Excellent Performance

The most effective way to improve overall performance is to establish a clear link between individual results and rewards. Make sure your best and brightest employees have the tools, resources and support they need for peak performance. Also consider including top performers in strategic planning initiatives and programs designed to improve organizational competitiveness, so that they know their input is valued.

Late last year, InformationWeek published an article on the IT talent shortage. To get a sense of the scale of the problem, the magazine surveyed the information technology community, asking if IT professionals see a talent shortage in one or more critical business areas.

More than 73 percent of respondents at companies with fewer than 1,000 employees indicated that they've had trouble finding the right talent. The problem is even more acute at larger companies: 88 percent reported that they've experienced an IT talent shortage.

So how can companies keep the most talented IT professionals on board? Improving employee engagement is the key to keeping the best and brightest at your company – and away from competitors. In this slideshow, Dominique Jones, vice president of human resources at Halogen Software, has identified five tips that can increase motivation and staff loyalty.
