Career Path Accelerator

Boost retention, empower employees, and build a stronger talent pipeline by creating a career pathing program for your organization.


Career pathing enables your employees to explore and visualize a wider range of career options within the organization based on their knowledge, skills, abilities, interests, and career goals as well as the organization’s talent needs. Creating a flexible career pathing program helps you boost retention, build a stronger talent pipeline, and demonstrate a deeper commitment to every employee's long-term success.

Career pathing answers these critical questions:

Where am I today?
Where can I go tomorrow?
How can I achieve my career goals?

Accelerate a best-in-class program

An effective career pathing program connects your employees to a wide range of career options and empowers them to take the initiative in exploring and planning their career journey.

HRSG helps you plan, implement, and monitor a career-pathing program that is flexible, consistent, and intuitive. Starting with a single career path, we build a set of success models for every role on the path and define the development pathways between these roles. This framework can then be replicated to develop other career paths.
