The organizations that emphasize on research and development (R&D) require outstanding professionals in the subject matter. Managing those resources is critical to conduct state-of-the-art research and development, and manufacturing. It is important to understand what these R&D professionals want to achieve. If managers cannot comprehend their career growth needs they may end up losing those personnel. Organizations need to come up with career paths to retain and motivate workers. They need to make a balance between organizational needs and individuals’ needs, and develop career paths accordingly [1]. This allows for achieving employee commitment and retention within the organization.
