Career Development Basics

Chapter 3

Even in the best financial times, career development is often relegated to the back of the bus because it's seen as a short-term cost rather than a long-term investment with lasting impact. But the reality is that career development helps people strive for meaningful accomplishment in the workplace, and both individuals and organizations thrive when their goals are being met.  Chapter 3 of Career Development Basics: Key Career Development Strategies for Every Organization provides practical information on sound strategies and approaches that can be implemented in any organization.

Within this book you'll find a sound, no-nonsense framework for implementing a career development focus, supplemented by an array of easy-to-understand materials including worksheets, comparison charts, case studies, flowcharts, and specific forms for turnover cost calculation and a sample performance review.
