Abstract Weak workforce engagement can lead to poor retention, increased absenteeism, and lowered productivity. Career development opportunities are one potential solution. A survey by Right Management found that opportunities for employer education drive engagement, retention, productivity, and performance. Survey respondents ranked learning and development second only to work processes on a list of general engagement drivers. Over half of the top ten individual engagement drivers in the survey were related to career development in some way. Employers looking to improve their career development opportunities should develop a formal program that addresses the needs and challenges of their specific organizations.
