New trends in career development

May 9, 2016 Sarah Beckett

Millennials. MOOCs. BYOD. Career lattices. With so many trends and technologies converging on career development, it’s hard to stay ahead of the curve. HRSG’s new ebook examines some of the big changes that have taken place and looks at how competencies can help your organization navigate them successfully.

The way we define career development has changed dramatically over the past decade. Rigidly defined career trajectories and hierarchies have given way to winding paths that lead in many different directions. In response, development has evolved from a narrowly defined, prescriptive process to an autonomous and continuous one. And that process has come to play an important role not just in advancement, but in virtually every phase of the talent-management lifecycle.

These changes in the way career development is leveraged in the organization may pose challenges, but they are challenges worth addressing. Organizations that prioritize career development enjoy faster growth, higher profit margins, and deeper levels of employee engagement.

Our latest ebook focuses on this critical function, examining the evolution of career development and exploring the ways in which it can impact organizational performance.

“Engaging and Developing Talent with Competencies” looks at career development from a competency-based perspective and breaks down the key elements of a successful program. The ebook includes a review of the latest trends and practical information on how to build a competency framework that supports engaging, self-directed career pathways.
