Careers in Motion

The meaning of Careers has changed.

It’s evolved away from linear, ladder-climbing to encompass a wide-ranging journey, where the sky's the limit... Today, your employees want to lead their own adventure.

Where will that adventure take them? How can you help them get there? What skills and experiences do they have? What skills will they need, and how can they learn them? Our research shows employees are more likely to stay with an organization and be highly engaged when they see a number of clear career experiences and growth opportunities within reach. We also know that replacing employees is disruptive and expensive. It can cost three times an average salary to replace an employee, and you lose each individual’s unique talents.

The answer? An integrated Career Ecosystem. And WTW can show you the way.
