92Career provide employees with a platform for strategically working towards their professional goals, including training and development programs, performance reviews processes, upskilling opportunities, mentoring programs and other initiatives.
Paycor’s career management solution gives HR departments an easy way to structure and implement strategies designed to increase employee engagement and enhance overall business outcomes.
1. Employee Engagement
Employee engagement has long been a priority of leadership as disengaged employees are one of the primary causes of turnover in any organization, creating additional costs associated with finding replacements, onboarding them and training them properly. Conversely, engaged employees tend to be more productive and better at providing exceptional customer service.
Finding the root of employee engagement can be difficult. Employee satisfaction surveys provide insights, yet it can be challenging to use those results to take effective steps that improve employee experience. To do this successfully, you need to understand key drivers of engagement within your organization’s context; an actively disengaged employee might work hard at their tasks without passion or interest, undermining efforts of engaged coworkers and creating an unpleasant workplace atmosphere – but one way out would be making changes that address specific sources of discontentment.
2. Employee Development
Small and midsized businesses strive to support their employees and foster their loyalty, especially as high employee turnover can compromise morale and productivity rates. A career management platform can assist organizations by offering self-assessment tools, predictive analytics reports and networking opportunities designed specifically to promote employee development.
Many of these platforms also integrate with learning management systems to allow employees to enroll in courses or attend classes that will strengthen their skills, providing greater flexibility when it comes to employee development and helping organizations ensure that they meet employees’ career needs. This can boost engagement by showing an organization cares about its employee’s professional growth; job satisfaction may increase by providing clear paths leading to success such as taking on senior roles or working in different departments for a short period of time – giving employees opportunities to acquire new abilities while meeting career development goals.
3. Employee Succession Planning
Employee succession planning is one of the many elements of career management. It ensures your company is ready for leadership vacancies, while offering employees development opportunities to advance their careers and reduce employee attrition – particularly among high-performing workers who might consider new job opportunities.
With career management software, managers can identify potential successors for critical roles and develop plans to prepare them. This saves both time and money when conducting internal recruitment, while increasing retention rates. Software providers such as BirdDog and Paycor offer features that allow managers to structure an employee succession plan, training employees accordingly, as well as creating talent pools aligned with business goals – while providing visibility and reporting of your career management strategy.
4. Performance Management
Career management platforms enable employees to develop their professional skills and create an action plan to help them meet their professional goals. Furthermore, these solutions enable individuals to remain competitive in today’s ever-evolving job market.
Advanced Job Search Capabilities
Many career management software options offer advanced search features that enable users to quickly locate new opportunities by setting criteria in their profile – for example industry preferences/role titles/salary ranges etc – making job hunting faster and simpler without spending hours online searching manually for roles. This feature saves users both time and effort when job hunting.
Enhance Networking Capabilities
A career development platform equipped with networking tools can assist individuals in quickly finding jobs by connecting them with the relevant individuals within a company and making introductions that would otherwise take much more time through traditional means. Furthermore, such access also enables individuals to establish relationships with decision makers at prospective companies that would take much longer otherwise.
