Getting ahead in your career

Realising Ambitions

Getting ahead in your career

Everyone benefits when the organisation can promote employees from within.  It’s motivational for staff, increases organisational agility and it’s much cheaper than hiring externally too.

However, employees aren’t always aware of what they need to do to make themselves more promotable.  Being good at their current job is not the only criteria.

This session shows employees what to do to progress their career and become a rising star within their organisation.  It also supports EDI initiatives to ensure that everyone can realise their potential.

“It taught me that the ‘head down, work hard, people will notice and appreciate this’ approach is not enough, if you want to get promoted. You have to bring people’s attention to what you have accomplished. It was super-helpful.”
