Theres No Single Path to Career Advancement
For years, we’ve been trained (dare I say, brainwashed) to believe and embrace the idea of “climbing the career ladder.” This is especially the case for working professionals in the U.S.
Career Growth is more than just “up”
People love to think of journeys as a straight line, as a neat path from point A to point B. It’s no different in the workplace. The ideal growth path is to climb steadily, one rung after other, up the career ladder. Start at the bottom, put in your time, and work your way up. That’s the way it works, right? Not so fast. Talk to the nearest leader – did they have a straight shot career path? Not likely. 93% of young professionals say they left their last employee to change job roles entirely. They didn’t leave to go up…they swerved.
Creating a future-proof workforce
The global workforce is changing dramatically, constantly evolving to embrace fresh opportunities and respond to emerging conditions. At the forefront of this evolution are the forces of digitalization, technological advancements and the innovative integration of artificial intelligence. Companies must embark on a digital journey to thrive in this shifting paradigm, transforming their collaboration. This ushers in novel opportunities but poses a set of challenges that both employers and employees must navigate.
