Benefits Of A Career-Friendly Organisation 

  • A career-friendly organization attracts the best talents 
  • It motivates and makes talents give their best
  • It secures the best talents for a long period
  • It helps the organization achieve its goals and objectives and of course, yields massive productivity.
In this article, we shall see how to develop a career-friendly organization.
  • Encourage Independence Of Employees

If you want to build a career-friendly organisation, eliminate unnecessary bottlenecks. Bottlenecks and red-tapism strangulate creativity and independent thinking. When you are nosing around or breathing down the necks of employees, it affects their productivity and creativity. Therefore, encourage them to start new projects, take actions based on their wisdom and experiences and expertise and always seek their opinions on crucial matters.
  • Reward Ingenuity And Industry

Without rewards for ingenuity and industry, an organization is bound to experience deliberate poor performances and low productivity from its workforce, which in many ways is anti-career progress. When there are no incentives, employees are discouraged and the best talents are underutilized.  In some cases, those that love challenges might look elsewhere where their talents are rewarded. Conversely, when employees are rewarded with bonuses, awards, prizes, trophies, and other incentives, it boosts their CVs and resumes, which in the long run, encourages employees to strive to give their best.
  • Promote Advancing Employees 

When promotions are steady, talents are encouraged to stay and give their best. This is because regular promotion is an indication of career growth. However, in a place where there is no promotion for hardworking workers or it is epileptic, it can be counterproductive. Therefore, to create a career-friendly organization, ensure that there is provision for steady promotion and the parameters for such.
  • Develop In-house Programs

Finally, another way to create a career-friendly organization is to develop an in-house career development program via training. This could be done on an annual basis depending on the time and resources available to the organization. Further, you can sponsor employees for refreshing courses within or outside the country. Also, having a bureau for bursary allocation for staff’s education can be another way to grow employees’ careers, as well as retain the best talents. Featured Image Source: Nace
