Career development matters.
In fact, research shows that perceived lack of career opportunities is one of the top reasons employees are leaving their jobs. Why is that?
Many people still hold a linear view of career progression, which can lead to them being unsure of where to go or what to do next to move their career forward. But careers don’t have to take a linear form. They can be squiggly, and there are all kinds of ways in which we can develop our skills, and ourselves.
This is why it is so important to inspire staff by showing them the art of the possible.
Designing career pathways for each employee, team and department is a great way to enable people to see all the career development opportunities available to them, and widen their perspective. But with such busy workloads, we know that it’s not easy for HR professionals to take time away from managing the day-to-day to plan the future.
There are many benefits to sharing career pathways for all your teams.
