Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This study explores some important aspects of organisational career management (OCM) in Israel. Overall, our data, obtained from 136 large firms, represented by their human resource managers (HRMs), reflect a fairly paternalistic approach to career management; careers are mostly managed by the organisation. Specifically, we also found that: 1. For making promotion decisions HRMs tend to rely on particularistic criteria and evaluations programs; 2. For managing promotion HRMs rely on internal HR development programs; and 3. Because upward mobility opportunities are limited, many opt for external labour markets to acquire managerial talent. Implications of these findings and directions for future research are discussed.
