Workforce surveys over the past few years have revealed that between 50 and 60 percent of workers want to make a
job change. While those numbers may be somewhat surprising given the weak economy, the reality is that many workers don’t feel appreciated at work. Even highly engaged employees – 43 percent of those surveyed by Accenture - have weak or lukewarm intentions to stay with their current employers. This pent-up demand for a change can spur job seekers to take risks they may not ordinarily take. Security managers manage risks for their employers every day, but are they managing the career risks that could endanger or derail their careers?
This session will lay out the Top 10 Career Risks security professionals face in today’s unusual job market. You may already know that there are hazards to leaving a job too soon, changing jobs too frequently, or conversely, staying in a role too long. This session will reveal the newly emerging career risks that reflect both structural and fluid changes in the 21st Century workplace. You will receive guidance on how to prepare to launch a search for your next career challenge, as well as advice on how to advance without changing employers. In addition, the session will provide concrete information on managing other professional risks that range from reputational harm to destructive inter-personal interactions. In today’s work environments – public or private sector – the rules have changed and the landscapes are dynamic so the old rules are out. This session will bring you up to speed on what’s happening right now while preparing you for what lies ahead.
This session will be interactive with audience questions welcomed. I hope you can join us!
