The result is an individual's personal career plan.
Fewer than 10% of employees ever make a career plan. Energy companies are concerned that 30-40% of their management team members will retire in the next 5 years. They want to prepare their future leaders by sharing career success principles that have proven themselves as high value for their employee's future and the companies' continued success.
