What is Grow, and how it is used
What is Grow?
The Grow tool facilitates employee growth and development. You can evaluate employees' growth throughout time with individualized growth areas, job leveling, and competency enablement. You can customize growth areas to fit individual employees while keeping the focus on your organization leveling structure. These structured pathways help stimulate professional growth and foster high levels of engagement within your organization.
Lattice makes it easier for your organization to get started with Grow by providing track templates directly in the platform that you can use. Track templates, with pre-loaded competencies, levels, and expectations, are a great starting point if your company does not yet have a competency framework in place or if you are looking for best practices to structure a matrix.
Why use Grow?
Grow is ideal for personal objectives that are harder to measure but visible through consistent behaviors. Common examples include: becoming a better public speaker, honing project management skills, or delegating more effectively.
Growth areas align to the competencies required for specific roles or job levels and personal skills. Grow helps answer the question of, "how can I up-level my career and continue to improve as an individual?". Grow gives employees the autonomy to determine and pursue their own development and career aspirations.
From a reporting perspective, Grow allows you to track growth area creation and competency growth— these reports help show which employees are working on themselves and how they're progressing in their careers.
