Are nearly half the employers out there failing to give their employees what they need in order to experience career advancement?

That’s the implication of a Towers Watson Talent Management and Rewards Survey of 160 U.S. and Canadian businesses. When asked whether they thought their workers were “able to achieve career advancement given the structure and tools currently in place,” 44 percent said “no.” Perhaps more disturbing, 37 percent said they didn’t think their employees know how to influence their own career trajectories.
