[LISTEN] Looking back at 2019 and mapping out 2020 in the world of work

2019 has seen many industries under threat with a series of retrenchments under a sluggish economy.

Next year may prove to be as challenging but for those fortunate enough to have a job, there is much you can do to ensure your career development.

Human capital development executive Edith Leeuta shares some advice on how to plan for your career and what to do to ensure your skills are still relevant and that you are still competitive in the market.

If you think of 2019 and what you have done, go back to some of the feedback you have received whether it's from colleagues, the person you report to or your customers. It is always important to take stock of what we are good at and where we need to develop.

Edith Leeuta, Human capital development executive

Often career goals and what we do is always linked to finance...all development requires money. If you are going to say that you want to better your qualification, you are going to need someone to pay for that. If you in the fortunate position to get a scholarship you're going to have to put time aside and time is money.
