According to a McKinsey survey:
- Executives around the world say the events that most profoundly affected their careers originated largely at work, not from family or personal issues
- 40 percent of respondents say they have had difficulty balancing work and home life, they also say this challenge doesn’t drive most career decisions.
- The survey uncovered few differences between the experiences of men and women. However, women are more likely to have had a mentor or role model and to have experienced discrimination.
- Respondents are satisfied with the outcome of career-shaping moments, saying that they led to more interesting and important jobs and to higher compensation.
Whatever defined the respondents’ most significant career-changing event, the most common outcome was a new job.
So are companies majorly failing to manage the change that develop from career decisions of their employees?
