Career Ladders and Lattices

Career ladders are the progression of jobs in an organization's specific occupational fields, ranked from highest to lowest, based on level of responsibility and pay.

Career paths encompass various forms of career progression, including vertical career ladders, dual career ladders, horizontal career lattices, career progression outside the organization and encore careers.

An integral part of EDSI's Career Ladders and Lattices services involve creating a Skills Balance Sheet, a process which identifies clear links and progression of internal job opportunities, where they exist today and where they could potentially exist when developed.

Advantages of identifying Career Ladders and Lattices are:

  • Increased productivity
  • Increased staff versatility
  • Improved morale
  • Improved work quality
  • Enhanced employee satisfaction
  • Reduced turnover
  • Promotes professional growth and job enhancement

EDSI also identifies common entry and exit points for various Career Ladders and Lattices within your organization and teaches how to successfully promote from within and "backfill" at the levels where recruitment is most easily accomplished.
