· Retention is 3x higher when employees see opportunity for career growth. (CCI Consulting, 2018)
Nine in 10 employees are open to new career opportunities and 67% might be actively seeking them right now. (LinkedIn, 2017)
CPI Austin provides a variety of scalable and customizable approaches that help organizations encourage and support internal career development programs.

The Business Impact of Internal Career Development
Addressing and supporting your employees’ desire for ongoing growth and development creates an environment where employees demonstrate greater commitment to team and organizational goals and drive their own performance. They are also more likely to innovate, share what they know and coach others, exhibit stronger customer service, and maintain a positive outlook.
