Personalised Development Plans

Effective employee growth is not a one-size-fits-all approach; it’s about recognising the uniqueness of each individual and tailoring growth strategies accordingly. Personalised development plans are a cornerstone of this approach, empowering employees to chart their growth journeys while aligning with organisational objectives. In this section, we’ll explore the concept of personalised development plans and how ServiceNow’s capabilities facilitate their creation and management.

Crafting individualised employee development paths

Personalised development plans involve collaboratively designing growth paths that consider an employee’s strengths, aspirations, and areas for improvement:

  • Goal setting: Employees and managers collaborate to set clear goals for skills enhancement, career progression, and more.
  • Identifying gaps: Assess existing skills and competencies to identify areas where growth is necessary.
  • Tailored strategies: Devise strategies that leverage the employee’s learning style and preferences.

Personalised development plans empower employees by giving them ownership of their growth trajectory:
