The changing world of work and way in which employees now view the term ‘career’, provides a real challenge when your organisation is looking to attract and retain top talent.

The balance of power has shifted away from organisations, towards individual employees who are taking control of when, where, and how they choose to work. The need for organisations to empower the right people in the right places and align talent development with strategic business goals, will increasingly become a major differentiator for success.

Organisations that have clear career pathways engage and empower employees, creating opportunities for them to identify and develop the key knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to progress their career. That’s how an organisation develops and retains talent.

This approach allows employees to create their own development plans and provides experiences intended to develop core technical and behavioural skills. Organisations then have the ability to align skills and behaviours with strategic roles, retain talent and provide a pipeline of future potential. It’s a win-win scenario for the individual and for the organisation – or is it?


How career pathways galvanise the future success of your business.

The benefits to your organisation of having clear career pathways are wide-spread: improvements in morale, productivity and engagement are just a few. With career pathways, employees can enhance their employability skills which leads to promotion, transfers or a change in career direction altogether.

MPI will help you build career pathways that:

  • Provide an organisational view of the skills and behaviours needed to achieve strategic goals so you can target the right activities and people.
  • Map out the organisational structure and career pathway strategy in order to move talent around the business.
  • Develop integrated development programmes that support career pathways business wide.
  • Allow managers to assess positions that might be at risk, have employee focused career conversations, take on talent from other parts of the organisation and build succession plans.
  • Empower individual employees, provide transparency and include the recommended actions for enhancing their career, the criteria to aid job search and the development plans to build capability..
