Is Creating a Year-End Career Review Necessary?

As we start to wind-down 2012 many HR professionals find this time of year the season to evaluate their career.  Whether it is for business or personal we reflect on the past year and look for ways to accomplish key action items so that the stage is set for a productive New Year.  This time of year I find myself looking at our business to determine what went well and what will need to change. 

Today more than ever, it's very important for leaders in the HR profession to establish personal and professional goals for the future.   HR professionals need to evaluate how their career is progressing, what is working and what changes are on the horizon.  Questions with respect to additional training, learning new skills, assuming greater responsibility are important to better position for future job opportunities.  The questions that should always be asked are:  “What will career be like in 12 months and how can I achieve that goal?”

Today is a great time to evaluate what went well?  What can be improved?   What relationships with employees and customers were successful and why?  Utilize the down time over the next several weeks to reflect on your personal and professional goals and develop a strategy to reach your goals for 2013.  We are starting a New Year and you can make it happen!

Happy Holidays and all the best for a prosperous 2013!
