When managers get career development right, talented people get the experiences and growth they need for a long and rewarding career with you.
With fewer vertical promotion opportunities, managers have become less confident moving careers forward, and even feel motivated to hoard talent. Your people can get stuck and disenchanted, or worse, leave. To stop this, you need to make sure your managers and leaders understand how careers work in your organisation, communicate opportunities to their teams, and nurture career development.
When leaders see people’s potential and aspirations, they can put talent to best use, boost productivity and stop the team stagnating. Your organisation gains a reputation as a great place to work. And has the skills you need to meet future opportunities.
Your managers are the vital link between your strategy and your people, empowering them means change happens for your employees.
