The main objective of designing and developing a career management program is to provide employees with an opportunity to grow within the organization and expand their horizons and upgrade and use their skills to maximum possible extent so that the organization can be benefited ultimately. Times have changed and so have the needs and aspirations of employees. Gone are the days when they would stick to their job until their retirement. In todays world, when there is so much to explore and achieve, they simply cant afford to be static. They need continuous development and evolvement of themselves and reach new heights.
Career program in such a scenario tries to strike a balance between the employee requirements and objectives and organizations requirements and objectives. The entire program is a consortium of several activities and workshops that help in fostering better communication at all levels of organization so everyone can understand each others requirements, skills and competencies.
The program also gives employees an opportunity to understand their own desires and aspirations and feasibility of their goals so that they can assess their skills and competencies and therefore, set realistic goals. Once a career program is introduced in the organization, the top management has to make sure that it serves the purpose for which it has been introduced and implemented. There are several factors that indicate the effectiveness of a career program. By assessing and analyzing them, the HR professionals can measure till what extent the program has been successful.
Along with this, a positive change in the attitude and behaviour of employees and adequacy of organizational career information can also be seen as indicators of career program effectiveness.
