Squiggly Careers


#286 How to help people to squiggle and stay

Season 2

The majority of people look outside of their company first when they are considering making a career move. This means that companies risk losing their best people and individuals might miss out on valuable opportunities for learning and growth. This week, Helen and Sarah take insights from their most recent article with Harvard Business Review about how managers can help people to squiggle and stay in the organisation. They explore the role of career conversations, the need to create internal career experiments and the importance of manager's being measured on mobility. Whether you are a manager or want to influence the ways that careers are managed in an organisation, this episode will give you lots of ideas for action.
