Despite being consistently linked with high levels of engagement, discretionary effort, retention, and results, career development continues to be among the greatest sources of employee dissatisfaction in today’s workplace. And in a workplace characterized by a tight labor market, that represents a significant problem. It also represents an opportunity for those in HR to assume their leadership role in driving business success by helping their organizations win the war for talent.

Attracting and retaining top performers demands a genuine commitment to employees and their development. Yet, too few organizations have discovered how to accomplish this in a sustained and sustainable fashion. Short-term career initiatives, IDP (individual development planning) systems, and featured ‘programs-of-the-month’ fail to deliver intended results - and in some cases further undermine employee satisfaction.

It’s 2020 and it’s time to crack the code on career development. Julie Winkle Giulioni, co-author of Help Them Grow or Watch Them Grow: Career Conversations Organizations Need and Employees Want, will share her findings from decades of field research. She’ll deconstruct effective career development, offering a practical framework that makes it more doable and durable by identifying and assessing the skills gaps in your workforce. HR professionals will walk away with in-the-trenches advice they can begin implementing immediately to drive enhanced career development and the many business outcomes that accompany it.

By the end of this session HR professionals will be able to:

  • Tap the potential of career development to drive organizational outcomes;
  • Leverage a multi-dimensional framework for change;
  • Help managers address their most prevalent excuses for not engaging in career development;
  • Redefine career development in a way that’s consistent with today’s realities;
  • Evaluate organizational culture to identify career development drivers and stallers;
