    "Career Progression Framework"

    As may be the case in many firms, one of the primary reasons for voluntary turnover within BioBridge Global’s subsidiaries is due to the lack of defined career paths.  Simply put, if employees don’t have a clear view of the path and opportunities ahead, they will create their own path by resigning.  Given the expense and disruption associated with turnover, a method to clearly communicate career opportunities and describe the associated requirements in order to allow employees to plan their career growth is a best practice. 

    Join us at our June meeting as John Barnes, Vice President Human Resources & Learning, describes the method and process he and his team developed to define and communicate career path opportunities for BioBridge Global’s employees. 


    Learning Objectives:

    Career Progression Framework basics and value to the Compensation field.
