Global minds local hearts
Maersk introduced the new career framework “MyCareer” in 2015. A system that creates clarity and transparency, it enables employees to make conscious career choices.
The new framework, shared by all business units and Group functions, defines a long-term successful career as a match between what the employee is passionate about, what he or she is good at and what the business needs. The goal is to support every employee in building a successful career, while at the same time guaranteeing the talent pipeline within the Maersk Group.
“One of the advantages of being a conglomerate is that we can offer employees a career path that goes beyond their individual business units, and stretches into the wider spectrum of industries in which we operate,” says Group Head of HR Lucien Alziari. “The new job catalogue will help employees see all the opportunities listed.”
MyCareer introduced a shared career philosophy for all of the Group’s business units, aligned their job ranking systems and created an overview of opportunities across the Group. It also facilitated a structured approach to career discussions with managers. Alziari stresses the fact that it still is up to every single employee to manage his or her career.
“It is your career, and it is your responsibility to choose where to take it,” he says. “We provide you with the tools to make conscious career choices – but you are in the driver’s seat.”
