Career Paths offers a career path model and useful tools and tips for developing, implementing, and integrating career paths into talent management systems. The authors describe the value of career paths from individual employee, organizational, and industry standpoints and show how career path efforts can be integrated with recruitment and hiring, strategic planning, succession management, employee development, and retention programs. With a sample career path guide and a list of resources for organizations, this book is an indispensable reference for HR professionals, managers and executives, training and development professionals, and organizational consultants.


"Versatility in talent is an organizational imperative, where career paths must link to both individual and organizational goals – this book provides a step-by-step guide on how to make that happen in your company."
– Jennifer Burnett, Talent Management Executive

“I like how Carter, Cook, and Dorsey have balanced the perspective and needs of the employee with the needs of the organization. They’ve provided a practical toolkit for practitioners, rooted in a strong conceptual model. I have looked at other sources on career paths in organizations, but this is the book I’d actually use to design a system.”
Steven D. Ashworth Ph.D, Manager, Human Resource Research & Analysis, Sempra Energy Utilities

“If you are, like me, a consultant who helps organizations develop and utilize their talent toward maximum performance; or a business leader building a worldclass organization with limited financial resources; or a Human Resources manager whose Generation Y employees are anxious to get ahead – you need to read this book. It clearly defines the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of using career path models as the foundation for a comprehensive talent management process.”
Gena Cox Ph.D, Managing Consultant, Human Capital Resource Center
