Despite being consistently linked with high levels of engagement, discretionary effort, retention and results, career development continues to be among the greatest sources of employee dissatisfaction in today’s workplace. And in a workplace characterized by a tightening labor market, that represents a significant problem. It also represents an opportunity for those in Human Resources to assume their leadership role in driving business success by helping their organizations win the war for talent.
Attracting and retaining top performers demands a genuine commitment to employees and their development. Yet too few organizations have discovered how to accomplish this in a sustained and sustainable fashion. Short-term career initiatives, IDP (individual development planning) systems, and featured ‘programs-of-the-month’ fail to deliver intended results... and in some cases further undermine employee satisfaction.
Now is the time for Human Resources professionals to crack the code on career development.
By the end of this session Human Resources professionals will be able to:
Tap the potential of career development to drive organizational outcomes
Leverage a multi-dimensional framework for change
Redefine career development consistent with today’s realities
Help managers address their most prevalent excuses for not engaging in career development
Evaluate organizational culture to identify career development drivers
