From careers to experiences

In a 21st-century career, the individual and their experiences take center stage.

A mere 12 % of South African respondents state that their organisation gives employees exposure to high-performing peers, offers internal coaching, or provides mentoring and the facilitation of external coaches/mentors in career development programmes.

It is clear that most organisations still focus on a traditional talent sourcing structure.

Only 31 % of respondents feel that their organisation is effective in empowering them to manage their career.

Key take-outs:

  • Offer on–the-job, experiential training to help employees progress along their career path and to assist them with any required skills   or knowledge.
  • Address lack of experience through immersion programmes in different jobs and roles to build organisational “bench strength” for future requirements.
