The CRO team will dedicate an entire day to particpate in workshops and round table discussions to help all team members plan their career path. In addition to using the day to learn, engage, and plan with peers and managers, each team member will have a written and agreed career plan built in collaboration with their manager. This includes both long term objectives as well as near-term milestones, goals, and key capabilites to learn.
The opening session will feature an interactive conversation with our CRO covering the following:
It will also feature pre-recorded snippets on some unique career paths.
The goal of these sessions is to show the importance of career development for our team members. We will provide an overview of growth and career development at GitLab that is segment specific. This includes helping team members feel an ownership of their journey and describing the roles and responsibilities for career development. Team members will have the ability to collaborate and discuss their development through guided discussions.
Team members will have the opportunity to complete self-guided skill building and create their individual growth plan. They can also use this time to prepare for a conversation with their manager regarding the growth plan.
During this session we will feature leaders at GitLab. That includes individual contributors and/or managers discussing what makes a “leader” and sharing tips and advice for career success.
Team members will be provided with job aids and resources during every session that can easily be accessed on highspot.
