Career planning and retention has understandably fallen off the top of the agenda of many organisations over the past few years.
As your employees return from their holidays, many will have intentions to make changes in their career. The question is no longer 'Are we doing enough to retain them', but 'If retention and high performance are an outcome, are we actually doing the right things now?'
Organisations have become more complex, more matrixed, much flatter and vastly more fluid over the years and it's become harder for employees to see where their future is and how to work their way through the organisational maze. Career planning resources in booklets and on intranets are almost out of date as soon as they are published.
Career Apps (or Applications) are dynamic and data driven: based on the actual progress people make in terms of roles fulfilled and rate of progression. They engage individuals in their own career mapping process and go far beyond simple web sites that contain largely static and rapidly obsolete resources.
