Careers are no longer ladders to climb. Here’s how to develop professionally instead - Deepstash

Careers were always linear, with every worker climbing the corporate ladder, rising from an individual contributor to a manager and then further upwards. 

This structure is now getting outdated.

  • Modern careers are spread in all directions and not just vertically. 
  • There can be horizontal growth, personal growth aligned with company requirements and a shift towards learning on the job, upgrading one’s skill sets.

Who you know has always been more important than what you know.

  • When most of the workforce went remote, the advantage of being close to a senior person who can help in one’s career growth evaporated.
  • Now, employers need to keep employees engaged and show that they are invested in their welfare.
  • This will create equal growth opportunities for introverts, WFH employees and those out in the field.

  • Employee training and development had been neglected earlier, but teaching the workforce new skills are the biggest drivers of employee engagement and happiness.
  • Most CEOs claim training as a big business challenge due to the costs involved and no immediate, tangible results to show.

  • Employees need democratizing and dynamic growth opportunities based on their passion and interests.
