The Case for Career Development

CSL’s Chief Human Resources Officer explains why the company wants employees to invest in themselves.


To thrive in the fast-moving field of biotechnology, embrace learning and career development, Elizabeth Walker, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for CSL, said on a new episode of the World of Promise podcast.  

As head of human resources for one of the world’s largest biotechnology companies, Walker said employee development remains a priority.

“It benefits – not only the individual – but CSL as well,” she said. “Over time we have seen other organizations pull back on investments in this area and shift the burden of development entirely to employees. We think that's a mistake. We think development has many benefits. It helps to improve innovation. It increases engagement and retention over time and enhances overall productivity.”
