“Managers get a different lens on what people across the department and function want to learn about... It's not just about solving for the individual, but also solving for the whole team.” – Oisín Dillon, Employee Experience Specialist, CarTrawler
Employees now have clear visibility into growth opportunities and potential career paths, opening an array of possibilities for them to progress within the company. One employee who started off as a customer advisor realized her ambitions lay in another function of the business. Through the Fuel50 platform, she saw an open vacancy for the CRM and Campaign Executive role and knew she wanted to apply. The platform enabled her to see the competency breakdown of the role, which of her skills matched the role, and which skills she needed to develop further. Once having taken the necessary steps to develop, she secured the role and successfully transitioned into that other function within the business.
Inspiring and powerful stories, like this one, of employees taking charge of their careers have given the team at CarTrawler a tangible sense of pride and accomplishment. CarTrawler are on a very exciting journey towards becoming a skills-based organization.
