Most people do not realize that for almost all companies, their personnel costs are their companies’ largest investment / expenditure! What are they doing to leverage and protect this vital investment? And as the economy continues to slowly but steadily improve, your best people are at high risk of leaving. This session will start with the compelling business rationale for why every employee and manager should be involved in career management and skills development. Several tools will be introduced including career mapping, future position evaluation, planning for skills building, and more. The session will then explore the power of mentoring in detail.
