dc.description.abstractIn order to improve the morale and raise the level of workforce productivity, it is critical to understand trends in an individual's motivational factors. We developed a closed-loop survey instrument and analysis methodology to identify distinct generational workforce motivational factors. Nine United States Army Research Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) supervisory engineers, General Schedule (GS) 14 and 15, reviewed the survey instrument for relevancy, consistency, and applicability to meet the objective. Through the 108 comments received, the instrument was refined for transition to the Human Resources directorate in RDECOM. Subsequently, we developed a plan to provide recommendations within the current government compensation and workplace environment structure to motivate the target generational workforce demographic to improve productivity. The deliverables from this project include a comprehensive motivational factors survey and approach to qualitative analysis techniques. In addition, we recommend a phased approach for broad-level survey dissemination and performance of responses analyses by RDECOM to affect workforce policy change implementation. In conclusion, through utilization of a survey instrument, RDECOM will be able to recognize generational motivational factors, translate that knowledge into historically successful and new or novel methods of rewards, introduce workplace environment changes, and award high achievers in order to retain the engineering workforce.en_US
