Development Planning Defined

Employee development planning is the process of tracking goals, recognizing employees and monitoring status on a regular basis. For many reasons, this valuable activity is often ignored, done improperly or handled as an afterthought during performance appraisals. As a result, employee dissatisfaction fuels many early exits. Development planning helps employees gain new skills and have more versatile relationships with their manager.
