3 Ways to Prepare Skilled Immigrants for Promotion

The strong and silent type

Do you expect employees to speak up when they want a promotion?

If you take this approach, you may be overlooking many talented employees who come from a culture where it’s customary to wait for an invitation for promotion.

There are three ways managers can be proactive and encourage all employees, including skilled immigrants, to apply for suitable positions:

  • Have an ongoing dialogue about employees’ learning needs, skill development and future career goals.
  • Identify high potential employees and develop them for more senior roles.
  • Identify lateral employment opportunities to help employees tap unused skill sets and develop new skills.
