. Do you think Career Ladders are outdated?
. Do you have a career ladder in your company?
o If not - What does career progression look like where you are?
. Has your role changed since your company became more digital?
. Have you seen new roles emerging to adapt to the digital climate?

. Are you utilising different to 'normal' recruitment platforms (E.g. social media)?
. How do you go about finding people with digital capabilities?
. How does your company retain staff? What do they do well (e.g. training opportunities, benefits, professional accreditation membership)?
. What does your company do to upskill the workforce?

The company bought a pocket calculator. It may take a week or so before it's your turn to use it.

Could there be a better way?

In theory yes, but in practice?

I think some up there are not taking this as seriously as the OP may have intended...
However the questions suggest a lack of understanding about how real companies operate in practice.
Normally there is no easily identified 'career ladder'. Like management and gant charts, such things are a teaching aid as to how to organise things, but are only a means, not an end iin themselves. For example, there may be a pay scale, and as people become more skilled, either they move up the pay scale or the company decides it cannot afford them, makes them redundant and gets someone younger cheaper and more inept. Or folk may in effect resign and apply for a new position to advance. Very few companies, except maybe very large ones, have structured training programs as such, either ad hoc courses are arranged and folk sent on them as needs arise, or folk are expected to fund themselves and arrive ready to work when applying for the job in the first place.

This is, however, utterly sod all to do with digital electronics, and everything to do with the way typical small and medium sized companies are organised in the UK.

The OP might have been a bit more personable,describing who they are and why they want to know before firing out a load of questions that have ***** all to do with the wiring and regulations category of this forum. For less, but more appropriate reponces from named sources the OP should have posted to the real IET forums :

Do you work for a recruitment agency?
Do you work for a training organisation?
Are you thinking of setting up one of the above?
