Strategies to Beat the "Initiative of the Day"

Career Systems International (CSI) partners with organizations around the globe challenged with the career development,engagement, and retention of their experienced workforce.

CSI - Connecting, Learning, Growing 

Employees, clients, partners and leaders of Career Systems International (CSI) met in Atlanta last month for an all-company meeting designed to help the organization continue on its path to connect, learn and grow.

Joining CSI were four client guests who shared their stories of successful partnerships to help develop, engage, retain and mentor their managers and employees. Also joining the meeting were special guests including Jonathan Winter of Career Innovation; Jennifer Kahnweiler, author of Quiet Influence; and Michael Wilkinson, author of The Secrets of Facilitation

In addition to learning from best-selling authors and hearing from clients, Founder Dr. Beverly Kaye shared her wit and her vision of a “fearless future” for CSI and Chief Executive Officer Pat Smith shared the company’s vision of transformation moving “together toward tomorrow.” CSI employees also learned about new offerings in the pipeline, marketing efforts, and more importantly from each other as the entire team shared best practices and their strengths during the event.

Coming Soon - Career Portal

We're excited to announce that we have entered a strategic partnership with The Career Innovation Company (Ci) to integrate CSI career development content into CiZone, a career portal platform, with the intent to make it available to global companies early in 2015.

Career development is one of the most powerful levers available to drive employee engagement, retention and results. The career portal provides career tools and resources to improve performance and development conversations as a way to drive business agility and highly-engaged performance. It includes the CareerPulseTM health-check, which gives users a comprehensive report to help them take control and be more agile. The focus is on supporting real conversations leading to action.
