Bridge for Managers and Employees

Org Chart, Schmorg Chart

Waiting for your manager to retire, leave the company, or go missing while on safari isn’t a healthy career goal. Bridge helps managers and employees think beyond titles and job descriptions, have substantive conversations about employees’ skills, goals, and passions, and make career development plans based on growth and performance.

Manager-Employee Issues

Managers & Employees With Bridge

Employees aren’t sure where development resources are located or how to access them.

Employees have easy access to a one-stop shop for their career development tools.

Employees have career destinations in mind, but no idea how to reach them. Managers want employees to grow, but lack the skills to help them.

Mentoring and coaching tools help managers respond quickly and effectively. Managers and employees have honest conversations about career planning.

Employees want to stay with the company, but need to feel like they’re there for a reason.

Managers can give employees a sense a purpose by connecting their individual goals to a defined career trajectory, and to team and company goals.

Why do people quit? Many times, it’s related to their managers. In 1:1s, you can’t ignore questions, you have to offer feedback, and you have to focus on the person you’re talking with. Everyone who participates in a 1:1 learns how to work with and approach the people in their network. This helps managers focus on not just what’s urgent, but what’s important, like identifying opportunities for all of our people to grow and develop.
