An article by Kuder's senior vice president of career planning and development, Dr. Spencer Niles, was published in HR Today by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
The article, titled "Career Development Challenges and Possibilities: Strengthen the Workforce by Integrating Supports for Employees’ Well-being," explores how the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the workplace underscore the mandate for career development and the need for workers to take more control of their career destinies. "What were once recommendations to workers – that they demonstrate the capacity to adapt to changing conditions, new developments and emerging challenges – are now requirements," says Dr. Niles. "It is now a necessity for workers to take responsibility for ongoing engagement in learning."
Dr. Niles proposes that HR professionals can play a key role in strengthening engagement and productivity in their organizations and elevate worker morale by leveraging three tactical approaches that align with the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK).
SHRM is the world's largest HR organization helping HR and business leaders create highly effective workplaces.
