Career Management & Progression

Learning Overview

Effective career management reflects the future skills and capability requirements of the employer and the desire of the individual employee for career opportunity.

Most individuals rely heavily on informal career advice and either do not recognise or do not effectively access support provided by their employers.

Recent UK report,  Employee Outlook: focus on skills and careers, revealed that a third of UK employees are disappointed with their career progression, with poor quality careers advice and poor line management at work to blame.  Employees who are satisfied in their jobs and have access to career opportunities through Career Management & Progression support are more likely to be engaged.

Responsibility for career management rests largely in a partnership between the individual and their line manager, although line managers typically receive little training to deliver effective career support.

HR Managers, Line and People Managers who are armed with effective career management skill will help drives employee engagement, whereas, poor career management usually breeds dissatisfaction.

The 2 Days workshop will equip participants with the requisite knowledge, skills, career management tools and techniques to effectively help employees in their career progression towards achieving higher employee satisfaction and productivity levels.
