Editor's Welcome
Welcome to HR Grapevine's 2019/20 Guide to Career Management

The prolific author Sarah Hathorn and CEO of Hathorn Consulting Group once said: “Become the CEO of your career destiny”. While this seems like an entirely logical mindset to have, in the professional world it is not always that simple. An employee’s destiny isn’t solely determined by the individual themselves; work managers have a lot of control over how quickly an employee gets promoted, receives a golden opportunity or develops to the next stage of their career. But when an employee has been promoted, they will require guidance from colleagues, managers or career coaches to teach them how to, for example, manage a team, ensure the daily functioning of a department and articulate both short and long-term goals to the rest of their colleagues.

In 2019’s issue of the Guide to Career Management, HR Grapevine will unpick how to develop a multigenerational workforce, explore how to educate employees on what makes a successful leader, and look at how a coaching mindset can help the business during periods of change.

Enjoy.

I am delighted to welcome you to the new-look of HR Grapevine's guide to Career Management

Organisations and employees are operating in a time of unprecedented change due to the uncertainty and political turmoil caused by Brexit, globalisation and artificial intelligence (AI). Digitalisation is disrupting industries and having a profound effect on the skills needed in the workforce.

For many companies, these critical skills are hard to find, particularly in a tight labour market. Making the most of the talent you already have can give a key competitive advantage, building employability in people whilst thinking about their opportunities both within and beyond your organisation.

In order to thrive, businesses need to invest in learning and development to grow the talent pipeline and upskill their greatest asset – their people. And when circumstances require, support them as they transition into new, fulfilling roles outside of the organisation.

At Right Management, people are at the centre of everything we do and I’m immensely proud to be a part of an industry that can support businesses – and their people – to succeed in an ever-changing world.
