Reaching The Summit - Professional Development Market Trend



According to a global survey of nearly 1,000 executives and managers, career development gets a failing grade from many workers.

There’s a disconnect between the career-development programs employers offer to employees and the kind of career development employees want.

41% of respondents said their employer’s approach to career development failed to meet their personal needs while an additional 30% had no opinion on the question.

Employees remain skeptical, indifferent or confused about their employer’s efforts to support their personal career development.

The survey found that 44% of employees do not believe that their career aspirations are supported with an effective talent management initiative and less than one-third of Generation X and baby boomer respondents were satisfied with their employer’s career-development efforts.
