Strategies for Electronic Career Support to Employees.
As more organizations reduce their human resources management (HRM) staff and look for ways for fewer employees to do more work, interest in developing electronic career support for employees is increasing. An Intranet-based solution uses technology to provide the means for bringing career development support to employees' workstations or their home computers. The outcome for individuals accessing such systems should be a strategic approach for making personal and professional plans based on the needs of their work setting. As people increasingly accept their employers' message that they are responsible for their own careers, their expectations that their employer will provide information, tools, and resources to conduct the required career planning are also increasing. Electronic career systems benefit employers and employees alike. An interactive planning system could include a career-planning section and life planning section. The career development system might include sections devoted to the following: career planning, life planning, employee resources, HRM/line manager support, and employer data. Within the career-planning section, the following stages could be included: searching and self-analyzing one's current situation; exploring the analysis results; exploring one's own information resources; setting career goals; and implementing career actions. Although such systems need continual management, they are highly cost effective. (MN)
