Good bye career ladder

The Germans are getting older, our working life is being extended. The emerging generation Y is somewhere in between looking for a career Sense and security.

The “War for Talents” is raging, we are amazed by the rapid technological progress. In this world of work, flexibility and innovation are more important than ever - for employees and companies alike.

Mosaic careers belong to the future

The current career ladder is less and less feasible under these conditions: it is too inflexible and difficult to adapt to the life stages of talents. Also, the needs of companies are not always congruent with the respective strengths of the existing talents.

Careers will therefore change increasingly in the future. Successful careers will be more diverse and increasingly resemble a mosaic of specialist, management and project assignments. The mission statement of the mosaic career meets our life stages and talents.

Flexibility to discover new tasks

It offers flexibility and agility and allows us to discover new roles and diverse tasks. Career is understood as a way of life that offers us additional opportunities.

Careers in the form of a mosaic meet both the changes in the world of work - such as the longer working life - as well as individual wishes and needs.

Mosaic career is still the exception

At the moment, mosaic careers are still the exception. Above all, prevailing status thinking stands in the way of an implementation.

Employees often adhere to existing social conventions and continue to combine successful careers with leadership advancement.

Away from the state of thinking

This is understandable, after all, many generations have successfully exemplified the “career ladder model”. Status symbols and the prevailing models of earnings continue to favor it to this day.

Side steps and career breaks are often not accepted by “status thinkers”. This will change slowly. The representatives of Generation Y are already particularly open to the new career culture, but also employees who are looking for a challenge again towards the end of their working life.

Yes to a new career culture

Mosaic careers bring with them existing hierarchies and structures in question.

Therefore, in order to anchor them in companies in the long term, a change in the corporate culture is necessary.

2 requirements for new careers

  1. The prerequisite for mosaic-style careers is, on the one hand, a culture that allows employees times of learning and making mistakes when they take on a new task.
  2. On the other hand, we also have to learn how to deal with occupational side steps and breaks and recognize that these are not negative. On the contrary, they are the breeding ground for the development of diverse skills.

  4. Be aware: you are in the driver's seat of your career
