What is Career Pathing?
Career Pathing is organized, comprehensive career development planning that helps employees envision the growth of their career with the company. It has been shown to help employees move up in their field. It focuses on skills attainment, employee engagement, succession planning and aligning company and employee objectives.
The four-step process involves identifying the career progression requirements of the company, building a foundational framework, successfully setting up the employee, and then communication, development and assessment.
Career pathing allows employees take control of their career’s development and plot out a course for achieving career milestones. It also motivates employees, reduces turnover, encourage engagement and brings the company’s talent more in line with its business objectives.
