Recruiting and retaining talented people is the key ingredient of managing technological innovation. As a bridge connecting academic research and applications, RIIT strives to become the technical innovation platform of TNList, which requires a great number of gifted personnel to manage and execute customer’s programs. RIIT explores optimized assessment and incentive systems to encourage its managers to take responsibilities in the development of leadership skills with enthusiasm.

RIIT needs people to join its work force at all experience levels. There are needs for well-established scholars who can serve as experts in the government’s science and technology planning agencies; there are needs for influential experts who can propose solutions to application challenges; and more importantly there are needs for technologists who can execute research projects efficiently.

Since its establishment, RIIT has been relying on academic departments within the School of Information and Science Technology for its HR needs. Many initial personnel are transferred from the departments of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. In addition, part time staff from academic departments, personnel from the collaborative partners, and visiting scholars from overseas also contributed to its early growth. The quality of its research has been greatly enhanced over the past years by internationally recruiting technologists with education and work experience abroad. Contract staff and graduate students are also an integral part of RIIT’s work force. Currently there are 169 full-time and 193 part-time employees, out of which 10 are recruited from overseas.

At RIIT the responsibility hierarchy is structured so the managing directors of research centers have sole HR authority within their own organization along with other responsibilities such as finance control, property management, and resource allocation. The research centers’ performance evaluation is based on R&D funding plus the consideration of other factors such as awards, teaching, patents, etc. The assessment results directly correlate to the next year’s resource allocation.

RIIT has implemented a public services-oriented quality management system, which institutionalize and standardize day-to-day management as well as support activities, which strengthens its sense of service and quality, internally and externally.
