Review TCO 9 listed at the top of the page. Many of you may have or do work for an organization in which “career development” takes on a bit of a life of its own, and has a very invested HR department that assists with, motivates, and encourages employee career development.
Others of you may work (or may have worked) for an organization—where absolutely no career development occurs.
There is a dual mindset of how involved a company or HR should be in its employees’ career development, but ultimately of course, a person needs to take responsibility for his or her own career options.
This week, let’s focus on the multiple aspects by starting with these questions:
- How important is career development to you?
- How much do you want your HR department to involve itself in your career development?
- How much, as a future HR person (if you plan to be one), would you want to be involved in your employees’ career development?
Explain your answers.
