The Employee Career Journey

Career development is defined and driven by our employees.  To build the best career possible at OCC, employees can work in partnership with their managers, Talent Management, and Organizational Development and tap into the resources and tools that OCC offers.

The OCC Career Framework

We have created a framework offering tools and resources to help clarify what’s required for employees to succeed in their current role and provide visibility into other roles and functions at OCC. It also defines People Manager and Individual Contributor career tracks.

The framework includes job families, which group similar sets of expertise and skills together, helping employees identify potential career paths across the company - including those not previously considered. It also defines competencies, the skills, knowledge and behaviors required to reach individual goals and drive OCC’s success.
