Rethinking Career Development
Careers used to be very linear; a ladder you would continue to climb up until retirement. But today we are discovering that careers are no longer strictly vertical. In this session, Kimberley Miller will challenge organizations to rethink their career development outlines and separate monetary promotions from job titles in order to create a robust working environment that encourages career development in all directions. Other topics Kimberley will cover include:
- Do you have a track for individuals who are people vs. craft focused? For example, can someone progress in your company without having to become a manager?
- Try before you buy. Do you have ways for folks to explore other areas of interest such as being an embed; apprentice; or job shadow?
- Who is responsible for an employees career development (ultimately the employee but who is there to support/guide/mentor)?
- How to start having these conversations to evolve your systems
