ABSTRACT
This article reports that the first investigation into the state of career management practices from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development shows that workers should focus on gaining as wide experience as possible to fast-track their careers. The survey of 732 human resource management practitioners in Great Britain shows that a substantial majority believe that experience and performance, particularly if this is gained in different countries, different business units and at different organizations, will become even more important than qualifications over time. The survey also reveals a gap between worker expectations and what human resources practitioners believe will hinder progression.
