What are the development options that new developers face after joining a company? How do you build a personal development plan that enables us to feedback ourselves? And how can we allow the entire department to take part in building this plan?
In November 2020 we have started to implement personal development plans in the different departments of monday.com. Plans that describe the different development options in the departments and aim to create clear and transparent definitions of the different progress paths in the company.
Just like the rest of the departments in monday.com, the R&D department also built a plan. But it was a slightly different one. We shared the first draft of the plan with all the developers, and they could later give notes and contribute to the build and definition of the different paths.
“The thing that characterizes all people here is that we are interested in being at the top of our profession, to continue and develop in a meaningful way as time goes by. The PDP is another tool out of the set of tools we have that could help them continue and grow”. (Daniel Leraya)
This week, Darya Wertheim speaks with Daniel Leraya, VP R&D and Product, and Daniel Weisblat, R&D HRBP & Recruitment lead at monday.com. They talk about the building of the Personal development plan and its meaning for the department’s developers. This episode is accompanied by a presentation where you can see the development paths mentioned in the episode. A link to this presentation can be found in the episode description in the application or on our website.
