- A VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) environment makes it increasingly difficult for organizations to predict the skills required or positions available in the future.
- The talent economy is increasingly fluid and flexible, and perceptions of a career are evolving as a result.
- Career path programs are not outdated, but they need to be approached differently – it’s less about creating a framework and more about creating visible opportunities.
- Amidst an increasingly fluid and flexible talent economy and a broadening definition of “career,” employees must drive their career development and the organization must provide support to get them there.
Impact and Result
- The need for employees to chart their career paths in the face of constantly changing skills has arrived. Build a program that empowers employees to drive their own careers and provides them with the tools to do so.
- In a VUCA environment, career paths offer a double benefit. Employees acquire a wide range of skills and explore interests, and organizations see increased engagement, bench strength, and retention.
