  • HOW?


In Nicholson International, we can help you establish a best-practice career development program that will help your organization achieve its talent and business objectives.

We believe in a simple and practical approach to career development: drive internal mobility and self-directed career development. We believe that companies benefit from providing individuals with visible career development opportunities and mobility within the organization to fill roles that are best suited for them. In turn, we believe that the best career development activities are self-directed, whereby individuals use the framework, resources, and opportunities provided by the organization to develop themselves in line with organizational goals and needs.

Providing constructive career development opportunities to employees is one of the most cost-effective ways to achieve the following benefits for your organization´s workforce program:

  • Retain and Engage Top Talent
  • Boost Engagement and Productivity
  • Strengthen the Succession Pipeline
  • Generate Knowledge Transfer and Retention
  • Create Positive Employer Branding
  • Drive Self-Directed Career Development

If you’re stuck in a job going nowhere, being overlooked for promotion, getting lots of interviews but no job offers, a graduate starting out in your career, or simply not sure what your next career move should be, we can help you get your career on track.
