In LinkedIn's 2018 Workplace Learning Report, 94 percent of employees say that they would stay at a company longer if it invested in their career development. Given the challenges of recruiting top talent in today’s competitive labor market, many organizations are placing an emphasis on employee career development and building their talent pipeline from within. But that raises the question, “How can organizations make sure employees are ready for the next stage of their career when the company needs them to be?”

The answer doesn’t have to be "succession planning." Call it a check-in or a 1:1, regular performance conversations provide the ideal forum to bring performance and learning together to create the growth opportunities your people expect.

In this program, Sharlyn Lauby, author of the HR Bartender blog, and Maura Woodman, product expert at Saba Software, will discuss how to use 1:1 meetings to support career development at any stage of the employee lifecycle.

You will gain insights into:
  • Why career development is an integral part of ongoing performance management
  • 5 Strategies for using 1:1s to support career development at any stage of the employee lifecycle
  • How to get organizational buy-in to implement an aligned career development strategy
  • How to measure the impact of career development on individual and organizational performance
