In-House Career Coaching: An International Partnership
McDermott, Debra; Neault, Roberta A.
Journal of Employment Counseling, v48 n3 p121-128 Sep 2011
This article describes a project in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to develop an in-house career coaching program to support and develop young employees recruited on an affirmative action initiative. The project involved the international partnership of a financial services organization in the UAE and a training provider in Canada to train human resources and learning and development professionals in basic career coaching skills. Initial evaluation showed promising potential for in-house career coaching as a tool for employee engagement and retention and for the usefulness of such partnerships between career professionals and organizations.
