    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 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. 

    A year ago we enjoyed a presentation from John Barnes, Vice President Human Resources & Learning, as he described the method and process he and his team were in the process of developing to define and communicate career path opportunities for BioBridge Global’s employees. 

    Join us at our August members only WebEx meeting as we follow up after their organization-wide launch of their Career Progression Framework.  John will describe the process in real time, lessons learned, successes, challenges and tips that could help you create a similar framework for your organization.


    Learning Objectives:

    Career Progression Framework basics and value to the Compensation field.
