What is Career Innovation?

Career innovation is the practice of thinking differently about career, work, employment and productivity in order to create new opportunities for today’s workforces to solve some of our most complex workforce problems.

Career theory and development is a distinct field of study that is often misunderstood or underestimated in its relevance to today’s economy. While everyone in the workforce has a career, few understand how careers evolve, what stages careers move through along the lifespan and how strong career strategy can be a competitive advantage – for individuals as well as for organizations.

Why is this important? We know that organizations who focus on career innovation harness the power of their workforce, capitalize on demographic shifts and implement leading practices relevant to today’s ever changing economy.
