How Hrtech can help with Individualized Career pathing

Career pathing plays a key role in the learning and development of employees, where individualization can be seen as having a vital impact on employee experience.

A couple of weeks back, a Microsoft employee gained tremendous popularity by sharing a collage of two pictures of himself. It was a then and now image with the first image being of the time when he joined his company and the second image of now. The salt and pepper hair were enough to display the amount of time he had been with the company. The current workforce that comprises majorly of millennials would probably not stay with a firm for so long. A Gallup survey reveals that more than half of the millennials surveyed i.e. 60% of them stated that they would be open to a different opportunity.

Gone are the days where employees were okay with waiting patiently for years for a promotion that they deserve.

Today’s employees are not looking for a standard set of succession and career pathing. They are not willing to spend too much of their time working with an organization that doesn’t show interest in developing their careers individually and not collectively.

Having the same set of plan for each and every employee is outmoded and unjustified. Every employee is different and their career pathing plan should differ too.

A single HR team cannot suffice for developing a career plan for each and every individual of the company based on their skills and growth speed. So, how can they take a step towards individualized career pathing of their workforce? That’s simple, by joining hands with technology, or more specifically, HR technology.
