As we look at the research from Deloitte Human Capital Trends 2016 and talk with clients, it's becoming increasingly clear that one of the biggest "broken" parts of our companies is the way we manage people's careers.
We are embarking on a major research study of this topic, one which we hope will uncover many new ideas, best-practices, and models of maturity. In the meantime, I've taken some time to put together my perspectives on this issue, and I welcome you to read the article. (Link here)
What I think you'll find is that career management in organizations has become a highly strategic issue: how we decide who moves into leadership, what leaders do, how we facilitate professional development, and how we help people move from role to role – all touch the nerve of our entire system for rewards, structure, and strategy.
I believe this is a fascinating and very important topic, if you would like to discuss your company's career management strategy please let us know.
