Dual Career Ladder/Track

What is a dual career ladder/track?

A dual career ladder, or dual career track, is a career development plan that offers employees an alternative career path in lieu of traditional promotions to supervisory or managerial positions. The dual career ladder is often used as a way to advance employees who have deep technical skills and/or education but who are not interested or inclined to pursue a management or supervisory track.
