Page 7: Conclusion - Taking Charge Of Your Own Development
The needs of employers are constantly developing and you are likely to work for a number of different employers in different roles during your working life. Never before has the responsibility of retaining and developing your own employability as part of your own personal development been so firmly placed on your shoulders.
The challenge you face during this time is to equip yourself with a new and broader range of skills. This places new demands upon you as an individual employee as well as the organisation you may work for. To stay in the labour market you will constantly have to maintain the currency of your skills. At the same time employers must actively encourage the development of your skills in order to maintain their own flexibility, creativity and innovation.
