)-- Career Engagement Group & Fokal Fusion Announce Strategic Partnership
Career Engagement Group and Fokal Fusion have signed a definitive agreement to offer the company’s Fuel50 career path mapping software to Fokal Fusion’s small, medium and large-enterprise clients. As part of the agreement, Fokal Fusion will become a reseller and services partner to Fuel50. Fokal Fusion’s team of human capital consultants will be accredited on implementation of the Fuel50 software and delivery of the company’s world-class workshops and training programs.
Fuel50 is a cloud-based talent management application that fills a critical gap in today’s traditional performance management and learning management systems. Traditional performance management tends to focus on operational, tactical goals and is often viewed as a snapshot in time rather than an ongoing progression. Learning, even when it is developmental, rarely has a well-defined end-goal in mind from the employee’s perspective. Although developmental learning courses are offered as growth opportunities for employees, unless the employee can pinpoint how each course will help in the progression of their career they will simply be taking courses in a vacuum.
Fuel50 is designed for, by and about the employee and helps the employee design individualized career path maps based on their unique values, motivators, talents and passions. These paths are tied to job families within an organization, often giving the employee their first insight into what career mobility options are available and appropriate for them. The result is that employees can easily identify various career paths within the company that may be a good fit for them – including lateral moves, one-up and even stretch roles. This helps the employee envision a long-term career strategy within the organization.
Fuel50 will provide key functionality as well as critical employee and job factors to directly support Fokal Fusion’s Human Capital solutions, which help organizations optimize their workforce, build high performing cultures/teams, and support the retention and attraction of key talent. These services are designed to give companies the resources and related metrics they need to promote employee alignment, impact, and contribution to their business.
In addition to the software, Fokal Fusion will also be accredited to deliver Fuel50’s proprietary workshops and boot camps designed to teach and empower:
· >Managers to have meaningful career development conversations with their team
· >Employees to take accountability for their career growth
· >Employees to develop and communicate their personal employee brand
· >Managers to target employee’s values and motivators to enhance engagement within an employee’s current role
