re: How To Lose Your Best IT Employees
I think this data does provide some insight, but I would have to say that innovation is a big part of some people wants (they may not be needs). Some people are perfectly happy keeping the lights on, while other want to build and innovate. I think the data being somewhat mixed implies there are a couple of different groups responding. Like most things, it is management's job to find out what makes each employee tick and to help them accomplish those goals if possible (it may not be accomplished with every project, but making an attempt when possible can go a long way).
