How do you get your employees more engaged with their work? An innovative
career management company believes it has the answer.
NANAIMO, BC, June 29 /CNW/ - ETHOS Career Management Group Ltd. announces
the release of its Organizational Career Management Model. Organizational
Career Management (OCM) - a relatively new concept - is a dynamic management
practice designed to help employers and employees benefit from aligning
corporate goals and employee career development needs. Glenn Kelso, ETHOS
Director of Research and Development, and his team learned that an employee's
commitment to his or her job is the primary driver for employee engagement.
Employers with Organizational Career Management strategies in place report
tangible improvements in their ability to attract, engage, and keep top
quality staff, which in turn significantly impacts business success.
The ETHOS Organizational Career Management model is the product of a
six-month research project that surveyed Canada's top employers discovering
their strategies for addressing the issues of Skills Shortages, Workforce
Retention, Employee Engagement and Succession Planning.
Organizations serious about building stability and long-term business
health understand the importance of developing effective succession planning
strategies. The ETHOS Model demonstrates how employee-initiated career
development benefits the entire organization through greater employee
engagement, skill enhancement and productivity. Organizational Career
Management creates a synergy between individual career planning and
organizational goals. Organizational Career Management's bottom-line return is
a more effective succession planning process that rewards employees'
Glenn Kelso contends that, "Employers of choice understand how important
opportunity for career development is for their staff. The ETHOS OCM Model
provides the framework for employees to understand how they can reach their
career goals with their current employer." The ETHOS Organizational Career
Management Model and narrative guide can be downloaded free of charge at
www.cmc.ethoscmg.com. This guide outlines how career management strategies
support and strengthen the entire organization.
The Government of Canada has contributed funding to this initiative
