Your on-demand career development offer

Want to know more about Career trails?

Organisations must be skilled in making careers work to drive growth and reskilling, and improve job satisfaction and productivity. In practice, career management is often left to individuals, or discussed in a yearly performance review. By providing on-demand career development resources, you give people the skills they need to better manage their careers with you. To enhance their job satisfaction, and drive skills development, and healthy internal mobility.

These state-of-the-art solutions help us on our mission to achieve personal growth and career development for everybody at the BMW Group.

What are Career trails?

Career trails are 45-minute guided career experiences that target five core career development needs. The trails are designed by career experts to drive behaviour change that moves people forward and enables skill development and career growth.

The coaching style encourages a mindset shift and sustained change through an energising mix of video, audio, real career stories, reflective activities and interactive workbooks.
