“Employee Career Development! Smart CEOs already get it because they’re seeing people leave and the cost of hiring top talent go up. Those that don’t get it, good luck! I want to tell the world, if you come work here, you’re gonna do amazing stuff, right? And then I also want them to think: “Holy Moly! They’re growing my career and potentially making me eight times more valuable in the marketplace. Maybe I should hang around longer and see where this ride takes me!”

    Symphony® FAQs

    Is Symphony only for larger businesses?

    Whatever your organisation’s size, paying attention to career development is going to pay off.

    For a smaller organisation it may be that only a couple of meetings are required to develop recommendations and we can provide support on the implementation or signpost to other resources as appropriate.

    For larger, more complex organisations this may form part of a larger project, needing more stakeholder involvement, greater co-ordination between different parts of the organisation and involving more complexity on the roll-out.
