Career Development Essential for Employee Retention
Mankato, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/27/2015 -- Career development has a direct impact on employee retention. Louise Dickmeyer, President of PDP Solutions discussed in the company blog, when peoples' desire to make advancement in their own career is not fulfilled, they will begin looking for work elsewhere. Opportunities to move up the career ladder often come down to availability of open positions—waiting for someone to die or retire to move up in the company is a sad reality for many people. When promotions seem like a waiting game to employees, organizations are at risk of turnover.
Dickmeyer explained, "PDP Solutions creates a technology mechanism that reports to all employees the career path of colleagues. It serves as a hopeful illustration that no matter what the current title or position being performed today at the manufacturing facility, there are choices and opportunities to grow and learn with the company. This type of personnel-based case study encourages engagement and employee retention.
Manufacturers who neglect communicating a strong career opportunity will find themselves hemorrhaging employees."
