Webinar Recording Details



Despite economic conditions, unemployment levels, or any other business factor imaginable, your best employees – the ones you need most – want one thing from you, plain and simple: to support their growth and development.  Study after study confirms that development is the single most powerful tool managers have for driving engagement, retention, productivity, and results. Yet, HR leaders know that career development is frequently the thing that gets sidelined unless or until the organization demands that some form be submitted during regular review cycles.

This session sheds a much needed light on specifically what managers can do – within the time-starved, priority-rich, pressure-cooker environment in which they operate – to support employees’ careers.  And it comes down to this: engage in short, ongoing conversations with employees about their career options, needs, and passions. It’s really that simple... and that complex.

Bev & Julie will utilize research from her new book to demystify the current complexity surrounding the importance of the career conversation.
