Careers are anything but linear these days. So how can you ensure your talented people stay, and are supported to build the capabilities they need for the future?
Manager conversations are at the heart of your career offer: communicating how careers work in your organisation, retaining talent, identifying potential, and building resilience.
These career conversations mean that employee’s career needs are heard, they’re clear on the opportunities available, and they know how to develop the future skillset that they – and your organisation – need.
What do managers need?
Proactive manager support is more important than ever for employee and organisation growth. Yet managers are often time poor, working though disruption, and with little career conversation training or experience.
Career inspirer upskills managers so they are confident to:
- Have meaningful career conversations
- Support employees to develop agency in their careers
- Boost career resilience
- Leverage team agility
- Help retain talent through coaching
- Find alignment between organisational needs and career aspirations
