She has made significant differences within the career development sector – locally, nationally, and internationally – through innovative program design and selfless leadership, consulting, and mentoring throughout the sector.

DESCRIPTION: Global workforce engagement numbers indicate that approximately 20% of the workforce is actively disengaged at work. Further, career development has recently been listed as a key driver of engagement. Broadly, this means that focusing on career development, within the workplace, can improve overall engagement numbers. The Career Engagement model and assessment tool help individuals and organizational leaders identify specific factors contributing to feelings of being overwhelmed, under-utilized, or completely disengaged. Maximum career engagement is achieved by aligning individual and organizational capacity with an appropriate level of challenge at work; pinpointing the source of career distress facilitates identification of relevant solutions and interventions. This workshop will focuses on how Career Development Professionals (CDP) can help organizations embed career development practices to maximize career engagement, thereby expanding the markets in which CDPs can work.


Participants will learn:

  • Benefits of considering career engagement
  • Tips for making a business case for implementing a career development process
  • Strategies for integrating a career planning process with other HR areas
