1. What is Career Pathing Software?

Career Pathing Software is a tool that lets companies create structured career paths for employees within an organization. It helps align emplyoee aspirations (taking the next career step) with organizational goals (clear roles, targeted competency development).

The result

  • More engagement & motivation
  • Higher employee retention
  • Higher productivity

2. How does the software facilitate career mapping for employees?

The tool lets you create clear career pathways for every role and level.

These paths are highly flexible, but usually include

  • competencies needed for every role
  • competencies needed to take the next step
  • detailed descriptions to know exactly what is expected
  • concrete desired outcomes as measurable results

This way, career progression can be approached from a competency perspective. The result is more horizontal and vertical mobility: People see where they stand thanks to connected 360° feedback. They also see what is expected to progress in their current role - or in other roles within the company.

3. Are there examples of career frameworks available within the software?

Yes! We know how hard it is to come up with detailed career frameworks. Hence, Zavvy is explicitly designed to not only let you launch a tool, but a whole career progression project, thanks to:

4. How does the software support career progression within an organization?

The software identifies skill gaps, recommends training resources, and offers actionable insights - all based on your underlying career frameworks and enhanced via AI.

This way, your people can focus on their career and actual training programs instead of struggling to pick programs in the first place.

5. Why should I pick this software and not others?

Zavvy is special because it closely connects your career paths and competencies with everything else you need:

  • Career frameworks so people know what is expected
  • 360° feedback to know where they actually stand
  • Internal and external training and development plans so people know how exactly to get from point A to point B

All these steps are enhanced by AI so that nobody will spend much time in between, but actually spend it progressing.

For example, by smartly suggesting focus areas based on feedback results and career paths - or by suggesting concrete training courses on the above.
