Continuous growth is essential to navigating the evolving and rapidly changing world of work. To stand out in today’s competitive market, to acquire and retain top talent, organizations must offer learning and development opportunities for their employees on a regular basis. Organizations must help them grow.

In the 2023 Career Optimism Index, almost half of the 5000 respondents said they want to develop their career and skillsets, but don’t have the support they need from their current employers. Managers play a key role in providing that support, in helping employees grow and develop. Managers who develop talent create employee experiences that cultivate engagement, tap into innovation, and prepare the organization for the future.

Guided by powerful conversations with their managers, employees can build meaningful, flexible, and resilient career strategies. When employees, with the help of their managers, become self-aware through assessments and feedback and explore the landscape and impacts of potential shifts and trends, they are prepared to identify opportunities and make informed choices about their growth, development and careers.

Through robust formal and informal career development conversations managers can:

  • Clarify their goals and career aspirations.
  • Identify development opportunities that prepare them for success.
  • Create realistic plans to stay on track and achieve their goals.

Successful careers don’t happen in isolation. Careers develop one conversation at a time. When managers have the skills needed to hold rich, relevant career development conversations, they demonstrate that they care about their employee’s future. The resulting dialogue builds trust and positively impacts the employee’s experience within the organization.

Help Them Grow introduces managers to a practical approach for supporting and guiding employees’ growth and development. The program provides hands-on practice using tools they need to prepare for career conversations and build an ongoing career development dialogue with employees.
