Motivating Key People

Dilys Robinson | Opinion Paper OP7 | Institute for Employment Studies | Mar 2007

Is your organisation losing its key people? Do you know why, and what might have persuaded them to stay? Taking a step back, are you confident that you can identify your key people (whether individuals or groups), and explain what makes them key? Above all, do you know what motivates them, and why they might be looking elsewhere for job satisfaction?

This paper aims to help you answer these questions and profiles different kinds of key people, for a practical and strategic approach.
