What’s in this article
In the new hybrid work reality, it can be hard for employees to develop themselves and understand which direction to take to get to the next level of their careers. Their progression can be hindered by unclear progression plans or expectations, a lack of visibility of new openings and a lack of communication with their manager.
This reality can be a real plague for businesses and HR. A job-hopping survey shows that poor career development opportunities (which includes when companies aren't offering clear career paths) is one of the top reasons for employees to look for another job. However, the appetite is there — 78% of employees (4 out of 5) would be happy to learn new skills with their current employers.
Enter Workleap Skills.
At Workleap, we are on a mission to level the playing field and give small-and-medium-sized businesses full visibility into their team’s skills to supercharge progression plans and make sure everyone on the team gets an equal opportunity to grow.
That’s why we are proud to launch our cutting-edge AI-powered progression plans and employee development features.
Before diving deeper into the specifics, we prepared a quick video featuring our visionary Head of Product and co-founder of Skills, Guillaume Roy, who will walk you through the essential functionalities included in this new release:
