upandatom said:$60k a year or $90/100? With the same amount of holidays, comparable if not better pension plans with more option and more control over the financial amount you put in, and where it gets invested,
RESPECT for your abilities,
The EXACT people they need to get this ACISS Idea up and running, the experience, knowledge and ability to implement the changes they desire, they are the ones taking their leave and walking away. You have to find ways to make people happy, there are options, technological dependant society, these skill sets are actively looked for via head hunting companies. I am more then happy in my current job being able to work from home 4 days a week(as long as I have an internet connection) and I still get telephone and emails from companies trying to hire me or coax me to moving on with them.
There are always going to be people that want to be in the military for intangible reasons, whether its answering a calling, patriotism or some altruistic reasons. That being said, you are correct - we are badly failing at coming up with strategies to keep our people engaged and to provide them with interesting and fulfilling career paths.
We really are working on this but it is a constant slog against stovepiped approaches, bureaucracy, training systems and just sheer inertia and malaise within ACISS.
