Career pathing as a retention strategy

Shreya Nidadavolu, a career and team growth specialist at Indeed is a speaker at the FuelX Conference. Her talk is “From chaos to career pathing as a retention strategy in a fast-growth world”

We are passionate about creating world-class career experiences for employees all around the world, it’s our belief that everyone should love their job! FuelX is a true celebration of those who are implementing best-in-class career experiences and journeys for their people.

Workforce needs are changing, in fact, executives predict at least 1 in 5 roles in organisation will cease to exist by 2022, however, only 55% of HR leaders are confident in their company’s ability to re-skill displaced workers (Mercer – Talent Trends, 2018).

Shreya will share the agile process that Indeed have adapted to successfully create a culture of career development, future-proofing their talent and organization. Technology is a key driver in how they think about their talent, ultimately everything goes back to one of their biggest philosophies: we care about what you care about.

Career development at Indeed

Her company’s MADE Inside Indeed career-development program offers four different learning tracks:

The first is called “Manifest Your Vision,” in which employees seek to understand what’s important to them and where they envision their careers going.

Next is “Achieve Your Goals,” where workers learn the “tools, tricks and tips to really take a skills-based development approach to create dynamic action plans for themselves,” Nidadavolu said.

The third track is called “Dare to Ask for Help,” which provides employees with networking, mentoring and coaching opportunities.

The final piece of the program is called “Evolve as You Grow,” whereby “Indeedians” can seek out further experiences to continuously grow.

“It all goes back to our HR philosophy: We care about what you care about,” Shreya says “we want to make sure what we do has an impact and to me, there’s nothing better than a career success story.”
