Does your HR team know how careers really work? Along with your managers, HR are usually at the frontline of critical, personal career decisions for staff. Understanding how to counsel your people through career planning is a core skill, and we're here to help.
HR are often the first line of counsel when it comes to career decision making. Often a Professional Coach, Mentor, Sponsor, Boss or Trainer will also be involved, however the HR Partner becomes the ‘hub’ in this wheel of professionals supporting staff through their goal planning, development and performance cycles. And yet, HR don’t always feel like they’re experts in ‘how careers work’ – how do career decisions actually get made? What is the best development opportunity? Does a good boss do more for your career than an overseas secondment, or visa versa? To be able to give good counsel, and therefore impact staff careers appropriately, HR should be confident in modern career dynamics and understand their resources.
