How managers can create, view, edit, or update a growth plan
As a manager, you can create or view a direct report's growth plan. Managers and direct reports can create growth areas specific to the employee's career development within a growth plan.
Before you start
Collectively your growth areas make up your growth plan. Growth areas are the skills the employee aims to develop to reach the next step in their career. Often these are associated with a specific competency in a job role, but they do not have to be. You can create a growth plan regardless if direct reports have not been assigned to a track.
Create a Growth Plan for a direct report
Step 1: Navigate to the People page on the discovery navigation.
Step 2: Under the My team section, select the direct report's name to be taken to their profile.
Step 3: Enter the Grow tab within the toolkit.
Step 4: Next to Growth Areas, click the plus sign (+).
Step 5: Give the growth area a Title and include a Description of what the report needs to accomplish to improve upon the growth area.
Step 6: Select the duration of focus for the plan under the Growth period.
Note: The growth period is not a hard deadline but a target date for focus.
Step 7 (optional): Add competency to the growth plan by selecting a competency within the report's track or another published track.
Please note: If given the visibility, you can view other tracks within your company.
Step 8: Select Publish.
If you are not ready to publish, all inputted information will be auto-saved and marked as a draft. Drafted Growth Areas will not be visible to anyone until that Growth Area is published.
