We are experts in career management. We help people understand their interests and values, and align these to their skills to find a career they will be truly passionate about. In the last 15 years, the founders of 10Eighty have helped 75,000 people manage their careers.
At the heart of our proposition is the return on investment that corporate clients experience as a result of a 10Eighty intervention. Evidence tells us that engaged employees are more productive, more loyal, take less time off work, generate high levels of customer satisfaction and this generates shareholder value. Put simply, the organisation is more profitable.
The dilemma is our inability to predict the future. As Canadian ice hockey player Wayne Gretzky says, it’s about moving to where the puck is going to be.

What do we mean by career management?
Forward planning by the organisation and the employee. It’s where you want to be.
For organisations it’s about ensuring you have the right people and resources for a sustainable future – the right people, in the right place at the right time.
For individuals it’s about understanding where you want to be in 3 to 5 years time, identifying what the very best candidate needs by way of qualifications, skills and experience, and a self assessment to identify aspirational competencies.
Reports for individuals and managers
Employee engagement: the evidence
Substantial research has emerged demonstrating the importance of employee engagement. It’s no longer an added extra, it’s fast becoming an essential for any employer.
Research by The Work Foundation states that increasing employee engagement by 10% puts £1500 per employee on the bottom line of the business.
The 2010 Towers Watson global workforce survey showed that 85% of employees understood that they are responsible for their own career, but only 43% felt they were equipped to take on this role.
‘The Evidence’, a comprehensive report produced by the Engage For Success taskforce supported by Marks & Spencer and the University of Bath in November 2012, looks at the evidence for employee engagement and its impact on performance and productivity in the UK economy.
You can find out more about Engage for Success’ work by visiting their website. And you can view Marks & Spencer’s HR Director, Tanith Dodge’s SlideShare presentation on employee engagement.
The CIPD ‘research insight’ Managing Careers for Organisational Capability says: “Good career management drives engagement, poor career management breeds dissatisfaction.”

Working with 10Eighty has literally transformed my life, not only career wise but for my two teenage daughters as well. The training programme provided by Michael and Linda, energised, educated and empowered me in my role as Colleague Support Advisor. My career cobwebs were literally `blown away`, enabling myself and colleagues to review the past and move into the future knowing why, how and whom. The resources provided were fun and interactive. I found the skills were transferrable and enabled my daughter at University to be more assertive, change course, apply for jobs and lead a happier more fulfilling life. My younger daughter has also chosen her A levels wisely knowing what drives and motivates her. Thank you 10Eighty.
