Professional Certifications and Associations

Many IT organizations require their staff to become certified in their professional fields and to remain current with certification levels. Specific certification programs that are required of an employee, such as the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) programs, should be clearly outlined in company documents.

Memberships in professional associations such as the Data Management Association (DAMA) and International Oracle Users Group (IOUG) should be greatly encouraged with membership fee reimbursement offered to the employees. If the employees are willing to put their time into these associations, management should help as much as possible. 

Some IT organizations view vendor conferences as perquisites. Some conferences happen to take place in nice cities, but that’s not the point. Most computer professionals would attend regardless. Any IT organization that does not stay in touch with the latest technologies and features will only end up hurting itself in missed opportunities for increased productivity, efficiency, cost-reduction, and process improvements.
