Your guide to creating a meaningful workplace

Find out when employees might need career development, what skills leaders need to facilitate career development, and how you can decide which career development practices are best for your organisation.

In this eBook, we explore career development for a meaningful workplace from three different perspectives: employees, leaders and the organisation. Your employees want a sense of meaning and purpose in their work, and they want to be supported by their employer to create it.

This guide has been designed for people working in human resources, learning and development, or organisational development.

The benefits of career development within an organisation cannot be overstated.

Just a few statistics highlight how essential career development is to today’s workers:

  • Having opportunities to learn and grow is the top driver of a great work culture.[1]

  • 94% of employees say they would stay at a company longer if it invested in their learning and development.[2]

  • 70% of employees would be somewhat likely to leave their current job to work for an organisation known for investing in employee development and learning.[3]

  • 34% of employees who left their previous job were motivated to do so by more career development opportunities.[4]

  • Companies that excel at internal mobility retain employees for nearly twice as long as companies that struggle with it. [5]

  • Employees who feel that their skills are being put to good use in their current job are 10 times less likely to be looking for another job that those who don’t.[6]
