In today’s hyper competitive talent market, highly skilled employees are in demand and therefore have many employment choices. As the data shows, they are taking advantage of them. They are quick to pursue other opportunities when a job falls short of their development expectations.
An innovative and increasingly popular tool for retaining key talent is Career Management. In today’s business environment, talent is the major differentiator. And developing that talent is one of the most significant drivers of employee engagement… which in turn is the key to all of the good business outcomes you seek: revenue, profitability, innovation, productivity, customer loyalty, quality, and cycle time.

Employee engagement is the emotional commitment the employee has to the organization and its goals. This emotional commitment means engaged employees actually care about their work and their company. They don’t work just for a paycheck or just for the next promotion, but work on behalf of the organization’s goals.
When organizations help employees stretch, grow and engage in their own career management, their business’s benefit and they retain talent.
