Dearth of career development

THREE in four Western Australian employers say lack of career development opportunities and increasing salary pressures are the top two factors affecting companies’ abilities to keep staff.

The latest TMP/Hudson Job Index Survey figures also reveal 22 per cent of WA employers plan to increase staff numbers during the September quarter.

Most staff increases are expected in construction, government and professional services.

"Businesses will no doubt continue to keep their eyes on the spreadsheet in order to ensure stability and growth," TMP/Hudson Global Resources Australia/New Zealand CEO Anne Hatton said.

"The point of difference for an organisation that will have long-term success in an increasingly competitive environment is the ability to retain staff and assure their long-term commitment."

TMP/Hudson Global Resources human resource consulting general manager, David Reynolds, said: "Those companies that are truly hungry for success would benefit from considering implementing robust career management and development initiatives”.
