As a manager, you want to hang on to your superstars. But ultimately, that’s detrimental to the organization and the individuals involved.
Multiple studies show that actively moving employees into different roles is one of the most underutilized, yet most effective, development and cultural enhancement techniques in companies today. Building a culture of mobility is a trait of very healthy organizations, with clear benefits: increased cross-functional collaboration, enhanced departmental cooperation, improved innovation, and more cohesion.
So how can organizations build a culture of career mobility?
On April 12, in a live, interactive HBR webinar, Kevin Oakes—founder of the Institute for Corporate Productivity, a leading human capital research firm focusing on people practices that drive high performance—will share insights on career mobility.
Oakes will discuss:

- Keys to a culture of mobility—which include giving managers incentives and reducing bureaucracy
- How career mobility helps retain talent
Findings from research along with real-world anecdotes and case studies.
