Grow's Individual Development Plans enable long-term and short-term career development and integrate it into the daily workflow.
To access your IDP, navigate to the Grow page.
What do Individual Development Plans (IDP) look like in Lattice?
An employee's IDP consists of two features:
The Growth areas allow employees to track progress toward their short-term development through documentation and action items. The Career Vision allows employees to engage in longer-term career planning through exercise prompts.
Description and Key Points
Growth areas allow employees to identify development opportunities and track progress against them alongside their manager
Career Vision allows employees to complete long-term career planning exercises alongside their manager
Individual Development Plans are shared documents between managers and employees that help employees determine their long-term and short-term career development goals
In combination, career visions and growth areas provide an aligned, consistent development process that enables continuous professional growth.
Growth areas allow employees to identify development opportunities and track progress against them alongside their manager. These are areas of focus that you work on for a duration of time to assist your career development and provide updates to the area.
Often growth areas are associated with a specific competency in a compensation band, but they do not have to be. You can create a growth area even if you are not assigned to a track.
Managers have visibility into the growth areas of their direct reports and can create growth areas on behalf of their team.
Learn more about growth areas in Create a Growth Area.
Career vision exercises help capture an employee's long-term career aspirations via exercise responses that they can share with their managers. Managers can then work with their direct reports to help support the employee's development based on their responses.
Career visions are not tied to your track level or competencies and are only completed once.
The career vision template is customizable to admins to help fit their organization.
