Practices and challenges from a UK perspective

Hirsh W | IES Paper  | Institute for Employment Studies | May 2007

This paper considers the nature of career development within employing organisations and its implications for the role of employers in offering career support to employed adults. Although based on research evidence and practical experience from the UK, recent research for Cedefop indicates that the issues explored here also seem likely to be of relevance to other European countries.

This paper is based on an input to the Guidance for Workforce Development Conference, held by CEDEFOP in Thessaloniki, 2007.
