Promotion used to mean climbing the ladder of an organisational hierarchy, when the ladders had many more rungs than they do now.

"Promotion is really in the eye of the beholder," says Rebecca Clarke, president of the Auckland Branch Committee of the Human Resources Institute of New Zealand.
"Moving into another industry can be as effective taking the opportunity to develop new skills or prove themselves to a new group of people. And there are so many opportunities to collaborate with people virtually and be part of different project teams."

Strategic workforce planning has become a critical competitive differentiator, and that places a heavy responsibility on HR, according to a new report from PwC.
Just 45 percent of HR leaders globally are very confident that they will have access to the right talent to execute on the business strategy.
