July 29, 2020, Paper, "Employees are key organizational stakeholders; the success of any organization depends in large part on employees’ continued development (Ferris et al., 1999). In today’s work environment, marked by rapid and profound change, employee development is becoming increasingly critical. Despite a recognition of the importance of employee development, research on what contributes to employee development is still nascent (Nielsen et al., 2017). This leaves organizations with little direction on how to foster employee development and maintain a competitive edge. In this symposium, we include four empirical papers that explore  developmental relationships at work and  potential barriers to employee development. Following the presentations, an eminent scholar on employee development and developmental relationships, Jennifer Chatman, will serve as a discussant. She will provide both theoretical and practical suggestions through an interactive discussion."
