 Suitability of the project
 Organization
 Skill

1.8 Employment

- by Bob Nelson of Retention Connection
"Every employee is a wellspring of potential energy. The degree to which that energy is tapped in any given employee is a function of the interaction between the employee, his or her manager, and the working environment. An organization that expects, inspires, and encourages employees to perform at their highest levels will more than likely achieve those results. Energized employees take charge and do what needs to be done without being told."
DESIGN COMPETITION is a process through which a Civil Engineer is selected above other competitors based on proposal or an innovative approach to solving a clients needs .
Canon 5c or the PICE Code or Ethics provides that “ Engineers may request , propose or accept professional commissions on a contingency basis only under circumstances in w/c their professional judgements would not be compromised “
