Career Development Report Released

Fort Worth/Dallas, Texas — Sept. 19

Insala, a global provider of Web-based career development and mentoring software, announced that its 2012 Career Development Survey Report is now available. The report offers insight into what organizations are providing, primary business reasons for employee career development, which career development activities are most effective and how companies communicate information about their career development programs.

One notable finding from the 320 HR professional survey respondents is the use of a more collaborative social learning approach to career development. For director-level and above, the most effective career development program offerings are: performance-driven coaching (52 percent); special projects or situational challenges (42 percent); and mentoring 1-on-1 (36 percent).

For all other employees below director level, the most effective career development program offerings are: traditional training (50 percent); mentoring 1-on-1 (39 percent); and special projects or situational challenges (37 percent).

Nearly half of survey respondents indicate that employees received information about their career development program through a company intranet, with one-third of the respondents indicating that they integrate employee data to help complete employee profiles.
