In today's competitive labor market, it is not always a simple task to obtain research and development personnel. The engineering graduates from our colleges and universities are not sufficient to meet the staggering demands of American industry today. Providing the most competition to the smaller research laboratories for urgently needed scientific manpower are large industrial and governmental organizations. Even so, if both salary and working conditions are favorable, personnel can be procured for these smaller organizations. This presentation discussed these important factors in developing a research and development program: 1) What areas of research and development do you wish to follow, 2) what kinds of research and development workers should you employ, and 3) where should you get your manpower?
