Abstract

Careers have changed. We know that. People at all levels want to have careers that are meaningful to them, match their needs, address their wants, and enable them to pursue and meet their goals. While that statement seems consistent with what careers have meant to people for years, the environments in which these careers happen has changed. Organization structures have shifted.

These shifts in the world of work have created the need for a new view of careers and the mobility available and necessary to maximize the employee experience.Careers today are mobile. To some degree that has been true in the past. However, the mobility we are referring to now is an expanded version of how leaders may have defined it previously. Career mobility encompasses more than simply being open to moving into another role or accepting a job in another function or location. Career mobility today is also about versatility and variety. It's about including a rich mix of experiences in the plan. It's about building and experiencing career patterns versus following
