Guide to Hiring and Retaining Great Civil Engineers is a guide to finding and keeping the best civil engineers. The need for civil engineers has outstripped supply, and it has become increasingly difficult for firms to retain civil engineers—particularly the best ones—and recruit additional civil engineers to meet staffing needs. Written by civil engineers with many years of experience in both the public and private sectors and by human resource practitioners, this Manual provides the pragmatic focus of civil engineering practitioners as well as valuable contributions from specialists in the human resources field. This manual will help engineering firms to improve their hiring practices and to keep the good engineers they already have. Topics include:

  • Retaining Key Civil Engineers;
  • Recruiting; Compensation and Benefits; and
  • Developing Your Team: Managerial Keys to Helping Junior Staff Advance Their Careers.

An appendix discusses "Career Path: Moving Up the Career Ladder."
