Employees and their Career Paths — Are you a HiPo, or are you managing HiPo’s? Are you working in an organization feeling the love? Or are you looking outside the organization for your next career opportunity?

Pamela Stambaugh is an expert on the organizational dilemma on how to keep employees, keep them growing and keep them satisfied with their career paths while STAYING inside the organization.

Pamela is a 16-year veteran of helping companies hire, develop, and build teams inside of organizations using the Harrison Assessments Talent Solutions as well as other assessments that provide hard data on the squishy people stuff. She has been conducting primary research across the United States in how companies manage their talent pipelines — a fancy way of saying keep and satisfy employees and keep them engaged. Losing them is expensive.

The timing of Baby Boomers retiring at a rate of 10,000 A DAY combined with Millennials coming into the workforce expecting a clearly defined career path has put the squeeze on companies to do a better job of managing their talent, and that need is global.

Some key positions are difficult to fill because the skill sets are specific. Recognizing the importance of the balance between eligibility and suitability has become tantamount, yet many organizations have very casual ways of managing these expectations — not because they don’t WANT to do a better job, but because the tools have not been available to them.

This convergence of need and precision analysis bodes well for organizations that get on the bandwagon NOW.
