Supporting Roles

To be meaningful and successful, career development must be a shared responsibility between you (the employee), your manager, and Human Resources.

Your Role

It is up to you to take ownership of your career development. Throughout this process, you should:
pursue developmental feedback

  • have open dialogue with your manager
  • utilize available resources to develop your skills
  • look for opportunities to learn while supporting the goals of the organization
  • know yourself

Your Manager’s Role

While your career development is primarily your own responsibility, your manager may offer support and advice, help you identify skills gaps, and provide regular feedback. Consider asking your manager to:

  • create appropriate developmental activities that will assist in generating success in the current role
  • provide opportunities and resources that will assist in future advancement opportunities
  • suggest alternatives
  • monitor your progress

HR’s Role

The Office of Human Resources also offers support and resources to employees and managers. HR can:

  • facilitate developmental workshops and trainings
  • update and maintain developmental resources
  • identify and promote learning opportunities in line with organizational goals
