How to Make a Career Development Plan

A key way for organizations to retain their best employees is to provide development opportunities. Employees are interested in their professional and career development, and cite development as one of their five leading factors that must be present for satisfaction and engagement at work.

Other factors include being treated with respect, feeling as if they belong by having access to information, influencing decisions that are made about their jobs, and having someone trustworthy be in charge. When forming an effective career development plan, it is important to focus on aspects of the employee’s career and professional development goals.

However, the employer should not guarantee or promise that the company will provide training or any other promised benefit. At most, the company should say it will help the employee as much as possible while taking into consideration things like company growth, economic circumstances, and priorities. Managers should also avoid taking responsibility for implementing the plan because the career development plan belongs solely to the employee and must be overseen by him or her. Managers can help employees by exploring options, providing opportunities when possible, and encouraging the employee to set goals for growth and expansion.
