11 Engineers in Elected Office Power Point Presentation : Investigate engineers who are serving or have recently served in elected offices How did they get involved? What have they been able to accomplish? What should other engineers be doing to support these efforts? “My background in a profession which is more analytical than most people has made me a person that others seek out in relation to issues that are detailed and require lots of quantitative analysis (budgeting, aid formulas, etc.)” –Mark Gottlieb, P.E., State Legislator, Wisconsin

13 Motivation Factors of Young Engineers – Document produced 2008 PEPP YEAC distributed a survey to over 4,000 young engineers (younger than 35) at different stages of their careers and in various disciplines and geographical areas with over 600 responses received. The document included information on: ◦ Generational Parallels – Compare Gen X/Gen Y/Millenials ◦ Motivating Factors – ◦ De-motivating Factors – ◦ Dispelling Myths – Are the next generations really that different? “Think about why you became an engineer in the first place. Chances are the answer to that is different for everyone. If you can pinpoint what makes engineering interesting/exciting/etc., then that's your motivation.” AVAILABLE FREE TO MEMBERS THROUGH ShopNSPE

14 MOTIVATING THE NEXT GENERATION July 2008 Presented at PEPP Council of Principals – NSPE Annual Convention, Portland, OR

15 Motivating the Next Generation Presented NSPE Convention Portland 2008 Rank top motivating factors from list of 25 suggestions. Determine the top 10 responses and overall motivating factors of young engineers. The top de-motivating factors were also determined. Many companies may underestimate the cost of losing young engineers, therefore under invest in them. “The things that this generation is asking for – flexibility, balance, opportunities – are all things that previous generations wanted, but they feel much more emboldened to ask for these things. They know they’re going to be a bigger part of the work force.” – Dan Black, Ernst & Young campus recruiter (CNN 6/6/08) COMING SOON AS AN NSPE WEB SEMINAR
