A key challenge for the majority of high technology companies is finding, managing and retaining good people. Yet a few firms such as PeopleSoft, Cisco, Sun, and Intel have astonishingly low staff turnover rates compared to their rivals. What's their secret? Based on the author's extensive interviews and field research, this book reveals how today's most successful high-tech companies motivate, communicate with, recruit, retain, and lead their incredibly volatile workforces. It describes a variety of successful approaches, and extracts insightful lessons applicable to companies in all industries. In addition there are case studies from Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, Sun, Intel, and others.
