road signs outside of a human resources conference implying the need for career development strategies

Last week, I wrote an article about the career development strategies that organizations need to consider. It’s important for organizations to make investments in an employee’s career and future with the organization. If they don’t, it could result in high turnover.

But that doesn’t mean employees are off the hook. Employees
need to have their own personal career strategies. They need to be able to
articulate to their managers what they want in terms of a career. In addition,
employees should have an honest opinion about the knowledge, skills, and
abilities they need to work on.
