Why choose a Career Review?
The UK workforce is ageing, and will continue to do so for at least the next 20 years. A quarter of our workforce is already aged over 50, and the UK Commission for Employment and Skills estimates that the shortage of young people to replace retiring workers will leave 5 million unfilled vacancies in the next 10 years. And in some sectors, business critical expertise is held only by a generation approaching retirement age.
How can a Career Review help? We believe that by giving workers access to mid-career guidance and advice, they’re able to review their professional aspirations, take on training and learning opportunities and make informed decisions about their futures. Whether delivered by a formal careers service, union learning representatives (ULRs) or another provider, the result is employees who are encouraged to remain in work longer and be more productive while there.
It helped re-engage the members of staff who were non-productive and who were ‘cruising’ and saying “I’m too old to change”... people were motivated to change their behaviour in the workplace.
