Company CEO Karen Cariss to Explain How the CareerPath App Helps Employers Align Organizational Goals with Employees’ Professional Objectives

ATLANTA, Ga., LONDON and MELBOURNE, Australia (September 30, 2013) PageUp People, a leading multinational talent management solutions provider, today announced details of the session that CEO Karen Cariss will lead at the upcoming HR Technology Conference and Exposition, held in Las Vegas October 7 -9, 2013. Titled “Personal Career Development: There’s an App for That at Microsoft,” the session will address how PageUp People’s CareerPath App helps companies, including Microsoft Australia, to improve employee retention by putting career development into their employees’ hands.

Most HR professionals recognize that an organization’s career development opportunities are a key component for attracting and retaining top talent. One of the best ways to engage employees in a long-term future with the company is through career pathing. A well-defined career path that details where an employee is, their goals for advancement and the skills and time needed to achieve those goals will provide the roadmap to align employee objectives with those of the company. Without such a solution, it is difficult for organizations to keep their best talent engaged and aware of the career paths available to them, which can lead to higher turnover.

During this session, Cariss will provide an overview of CareerPath, PageUp People’s predictive talent planning model, and explain how this solution estimates the path, time and investment required to prepare an organization’s workforce for the future. With this technology, employees gain a realistic roadmap for advancement, while employers can monitor the career paths leading to the most strategic and critical roles in the organization. In addition, Cariss will be joined by Sarah Vaughan, senior director, developer and platform evangelist for Microsoft Australia, who will explain how her company uses CareerPath as a self-service app to help its employees understand how they can reach their career goals within the organization.

“Our CareerPath solution has revolutionized the way organizations manage internal mobility, enabling individuals to take control of their own futures by visualizing the paths that will lead to career advancement and fulfillment of their professional goals,” said Cariss. “I am delighted to show attendees of the HR Technology Conference the real power of this innovative solution, and to work with Sarah to explain how CareerPath has helped Microsoft Australia’s employees to explore and better understand their future opportunities.”

The “Personal Career Development: There’s an App for That at Microsoft” session will take place on Tuesday, October 8, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. In addition, PageUp People will exhibit CareerPath and its other industry-leading talent management solutions during the conference’s exhibition hours at Booth No. 1037.
