Career Development in the Workplace. ERIC Digest No. 86.
Intended for employers, human resource staff, and adult educators, this digest addresses the purposes of career development programs in the workplace and describes the components of such programs. In the first section, the term career development is defined and labeled as just one component of organizations' human resource management. Eight factors that influence the need for career development are listed. The next section describes each step of the management cycle and states that the steps correspond to career development strategies that help both manager and employee maximize career growth. The next section discusses three distinct phases of the career development process (staffing and orientation, evaluation, and development) from which an employer can choose strategies to create a customized career development system. Guidelines for designing and implementing a career development system are presented in the final section. The digest concludes with four references. (CML)
