How to Make Powerful Employee Career Paths that will Retain High-Performers

March 15, 2018 by James Taylor

Creating career paths for employees can be a challenging but worthwhile initiative. In today’s ultra-competitive job market, it’s becoming more and more important to invest in your employees, so you can retain them in the long-term. The problem is, many companies are simply not doing a great job at providing tangible vertical career paths for top-performing employees.

A recent survey by Gallup found that 93% of people advance their career by taking a position with another company. This means that just 7% of employees are being promoted internally. For high-growth companies, recruiting might seem like the only option to quickly obtaining the best talent.

However, promoting internally can save you the time and money that would traditionally be spent on recruiting external candidates. Beyond this, internally recruited employees typically have a far shorter “ramp-up time”—meaning they can start making a big impact in their new position immediately.

In this post I’ll explore the benefits of creating clear career paths for your employees and outline a step-by-step process to launch your own career pathing program.
