Career Pathway Design

What is Career Pathway Design, and why does it matter to your business?

Career pathways engage and empower employees, creating opportunities for them to identify and develop the key knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to progress their careers.

That’s how an organisation develops and retains talent, through effective and sustainable career pathway design.

“It’s about getting the best people, retaining them, nurturing a creative environment and helping to find a way to innovate.” – Marissa Mayer

Who is it for?

Businesses that want to nurture talent, create new opportunities and offer learning and skills development, all of this helps to recruit and retain the highest performing people. Modern working life is all about give and take – the more support you offer your people in the development of their career through a career pathway, the more they will give back to you as a business.

The creation of  clear career pathways is beneficial for all employees from entry-level to top level leadership roles. Whether they’re starting out and looking to map out a new career pathway, or looking for a change, an approach with both employee and employer in mind can result in a plan that works for everyone.

The impact it will have

Developing your employees’ career pathways brings big benefits – for them and for you. For your staff, this means enhanced skills (and possible promotion opportunities) or the chance to try a new career direction.

From a business perspective, investing in individuals is the key to improved morale, higher productivity and increased levels of engagement. If you’re looking to achieve peak competitive advantage, take advantage of the improvement opportunities that are right under your nose – your people.
