While employer refers to that aggregate of personnel who originate and carry out the organization’s policies, many professional employees participate in the employer role. The term engineers in these guidelines includes all engineering classification levels, covering engineers who are functioning as managers, as well as subordinates of those engineering managers. The specific role of the engineer will determine whether the employer or engineer guidelines apply. We believe these guidelines are also appropriate for many scientists. All rights reserved.

IEEE-USA Professional Guideline Series INTRODUCTION Our nation’s economy is presenting new challenges to both employers and the technical work force. Global competition, deregulation and the increased influence of financial leaders and investors have led many organizations to change their employment practices drastically. As a result, downsizing, restructuring, shifting organizations and jobs overseas have been commonplace within organizations. Engineers should expect that organizations will act primarily in what they perceive to be their enlightened self- interest. The strength of our nation will always be dependent on having highly competent and dedicated engineering and science professionals. We can enhance future economic strength by nurturing employer-employee relationships that will help retain and motivate experienced engineers, and will also continue to attract new talent. These Guidelines can help employers and employees to understand clearly and fully the conditions in the workplace of the current and coming years, and they can provide guidance toward behavior that will be beneficial to the country and the engineering profession. Regular discussion of these Guidelines among employers, managers, human resources personnel and engineers will provide a basis for enhancing their working relationships and will lead to good communication and cooperation in the workplace.
