It is no longer customary to define career advancement solely in terms of promotions, transfers, and title changes. Beyond the ascent up the positional ladder, there are numerous more ways personnel can and desire to develop. Nevertheless, many businesses continue to operate under the misconception that promotions are the only choice for professional advancement, leaving employees disengaged, managers frustrated, and the company at a disadvantage in its efforts to retain talent.
