Enabling career opportunities – are managers the solution or the problem?

An intentional career strategy recognises the important role of managers and leaders in supporting the growth and career development of their employees, helping to make opportunities visible and accessible. Evidence points to the benefits of giving employees personal attention about their careers, but many managers don’t have the time, senior level support and encouragement, or capability to do this effectively.

In this roundtable discussion our ‘provocateur’ Geraldine Percival, Head of Talent & Development – Europe at Asahi Breweries described what she’s learnt from her experience of influencing organisational attitudes towards career development and how she is tackling the challenges and opportunities of building manager capability and confidence.

Participating organisations:
ABB, The British Council, Burberry, Ford Motor Company, KPMG, Mace, PRS for Music, Tullow Oil, W.L. Gore, Welch’s, Zurich.
