During this workshop we will discuss and work on proven strategies, systems, and guidance in how to develop a career plan for employees in your company. We will discuss how to develop lists of short-term and long-term career goals and the actions you can offer to help your employees achieve them.

For employers to have a successful and healthy high-performing workplace you have to have a defined career path for new and existing employees in today’s competitive job market. If you don’t, chances are your employees will jump ship. This workshop will help you develop a career plan for the majority of your employees so you can be more competitive as a long term employer of choice.

During this workshop we will look at the various steps in creating an effective employee development plan so we can better match with your employee’s career goals and needs. Topics that we will be covered include:

  • Hindsight: Why and how to get a clear understanding of each employee’s background, training, and experience. This is the baseline information you need in order to have a Career Path conversation with anyone.
  • Foresight: This includes looking forward at the needs of your company as it relates to your employees. We will discuss questions like: Where is our industry going? What’s going on in the bigger picture of the property damage repair industry? What training and experiences do they need to go to the next level.
  • Insight: We will discuss where Hindsight and Foresight intersect. Where do the employee’s skills and interests intersect with where the company and industry is going? Where does it make sense to focus development efforts to ensure the two are aligned?

During this training we will be focusing on topics like available training options, your HR plan, leadership development for your employees, growth and goal planning, Operations and how this helps develop your company culture. In addition to the training we will do workbook exercises and have open discussion on your needs. We will explore career options you can develop for your team by looking at which jobs can lead employees to better jobs and develop their skills within your company.

We will cover how to develop a career path for your employees. A career path is a laid out plan of a logical format of how employees may progress within a typical restoration business.
