Professional Development

Georgia Tech’s culture promotes individuals owning their careers. Career planning and professional development are best practices that assist managers with resources that are essential in developing and maintaining a high-performance workforce by increasing employee satisfaction and engagement.

Career planning allows employees to align their annual development plans with long-term career goals and organizational needs. Typically, the Career Development Plan is drafted and revised during the first phase of the Performance Management Cycle.
