Navigar

PIPSC, Jan 18, 2024

So this is interesting. I just received a notification from the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC), which is the union I belong to at my day job, announcing the launch of Navigar as "a web application to help our members future-proof their careers.... a smart online skills development platform that will be free to members when it launches later this year. Think of Navigar as a 'google maps' for your career, helping members get from where they are to where they want to go professionally." It's too soon to assess whether this was money well spent, but it does point to the relation between employee unions and online professional development, a relationship that becomes more and more important as employees become more mobile and want top prepare for their next job, not their current one.
