Ci Zone™ Career Tools
Career Innovation study in 1999 concluded that Generation X employees are committed to developing their own career rather than staying loyal to any particular employer. This helped explain why many companies were struggling with retention.
UP Tools was invited to create a resource that would address this challenge of retention. As a result during a 6-month period a comprehensive tool kit was designed and implemented. The Ci Zone™ encourages open discussion about career objectives and opportunities in organizations.
