Career Enablement - Empowering Employees
ManTech’s Career Enablement Program is designed to empower an inclusive and diverse workforce in their career journey. Managers engage with their employees each quarter in formal, documented career enablement check-ins to discuss development needs, assess career paths, and plan for the future. During these discussions, held quarterly and documented semi-annually, managers collaborate with employees and develop training plans, including topics of interest, certifications to pursue, potential degree programs, and mentoring opportunities. Employees are encouraged to talk to their managers about career-focused goals, even if those goals require job change. Managers are encouraged to highlight opportunities throughout the company where the employee can grow into their desired role. ManTech University (MTU) works directly with line managers to communicate learning opportunities and provides training. Our cultural transformation around career enablement has substantially improved the collaboration between line leaders, employees and Learning & Development (L&D) by encouraging development discussions as the central focus, documenting the results, and collaborating to act on the information through our L&D strategy. More than 95% of our population completed their career enablement check ins last year.
ManTech is committed to the professional development of our employees. MTU is the one-stop-shop for employee learning and development opportunities. ManTech also offers access to leading online universities to earn bachelor and master degrees – including free tuition opportunities – through Purdue University Global, Colorado Technical University and University of Maryland Global Campus.
