Creating a Development Plan


Getting started

Once Develop has been turned on for your organization, all users have access to Develop from the main navigation. To access Develop go to Development > Development plans.

When an employee visits Develop for the first time, they will be prompted to create their first development plan. Creating a development plan involves completing two guided workflows:

  • Step one: Know yourself - a guided self-reflection. Reflect on your strengths and what you care about. Consider your long-term work and career aspirations. Use these to help decide on the objective of your plan.
  • Step two: Build your plan - build an actionable plan. Determine the skills and behaviors you need to work on to achieve your objective. Focus on one growth area at a time to set goals and actions.

 

Inviting employees 

Once Develop has been turned on for your organization, all users have access to Develop from the main navigation. To access Develop go to Development > Development plans.

As an HR leader, you can get your employees on board by copying the development plan's URL and sharing it through your preferred messaging platform. Any employee in your employee data file will be able to access Develop.

 

Development Managers

When an employee creates a Development plan for the first time, they will be prompted to select their “development manager.” This person will be able to view (but not edit) the employees’ development plans. They will also be prompted with important updates to the person's development plan.

The development manager can be any employee in the employee data file. It does not need to be your manager in the organizational hierarchy. This supports organizations that have mentors and coaches who are not direct line managers. Employees are limited to having one development manager. 

 

Confirmation notifications

After completing each of the two development planning workflows (“Know yourself” and “Build your plan”), we notify the employee and their development manager via email.

After the “Build your plan” workflow is completed we prompt the manager to schedule a 1-on-1 via email to regularly review the plan together. 

 

Admin features

Reporting

Admins will soon be able to see aggregate level data on:

  • Participation
  • Responses to self-assessment questions
  • Motivitators 
  • Strengths 
  • Growth areas

The first version of reporting will be aggregate whole company data, with demographic reporting being introduced later. This feature is in development. 

 

Customizing development planning workflows 

For the early release of the product, the skills sections are not customisable. The current skills are based off our 360s, which are designed by People Scientists

We intend that in later versions of the product, the skills sections will be customisable to allow customers to map their own competencies. This feature is in development.
