Career Development Stalled

For many executives, it appears that their career development has stalled whether employed or not employed as that market has been in the doldrums while companies remain tight on hiring and promotions.  However, the fear in the market about shifting to a new employer has abated and most bonuses for last  year have been paid.  We see and expect a significant change in the interest of executives to move to a new organization that offers greater career opportunities.

For employers, it is time to relook at your key employees and what new challenges and opportunities can be provided to further their career development as well as the profitability of the organization.   Time to reestablish development and training programs for your team. Time to reexamine compensation and bonuses in light of the marketplace. 

For executives, it is time to reexamine your current career status and what is most important to you as well as how and whether your current organization can provide that for you.  It is time to pursue those needs first within your organization and then to examine opportunities that are increasingly emerging at other organizations.  It is time to refresh your resume as a focussed marketing document and think through what target organizations and roles would be attractive. 

It is time!!
