Career Development and Particle Physics at CERN by Pascale Goy

In this exclusive video in partnership with Merit Summit, Pascale Goy (Head of Learning and Development at CERN) looks at the success of CERN’s career development program.

With over 6000 staff at CERN, ranging from physicists to engineers, ensuring their is availability for long term development is a large concern for CERN.
Pascale firstly talks about the findings that were gathered from the employee engagement surveys with regards to motivation at work and progression.

CERN realised for the career development program to be a success and have buy-in, they had to make a positive impact on the organisation, the managers and the employee themselves. 

The framework focused on the importance of dialogue across the organisation and also what exactly a ‘career conversation’ is defined as and how it benefits someone.

CERN realised the importance of a career conversation and put it at the forefront of their development plan and Pascale brings to light the success of this across the organisation.
