Life-long career orientation
The development of one's career is primarily one's own responsibility. However, as employees are those who represent company value added, company too must get involved in the development of individuals. Knowledge, skills and competence of employees should match job requirements as closely as possible.
By the Lifelong Career Guidance for Companies and Their Employees programme, a comprehensive HR support to companies is offered. Project activities in companies revealed the importance of the role of the human resources department and its intent of becoming a strategic partner to management.
We cooperated with companies through the programme in two ways: by giving grants through calls for applications and by organising a series of expert workshops.
Companies decided which activity to carry out based on their needs and the needs of their employees. Employees were included in various profiling exercises based on which personal and professional career plans were to be developed. Afterwards the employees were included in training related to personal and career development and attainment of "soft" skills related to positive communication, stress management, innovations at work, motivation and contemporary leadership. As regards the fundamental personnel process, companies mostly decided to set up basic personnel processes and upgrade them by developing a competence model.
European Social fund and the Ministry of Labour, Family, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities supported the programme.
