Abstract

Organizations have become more flexible, adaptable, with flat hierarchical structures, and a limited opportunity for promotion, and these will have a significant impact on jobs and individuals careers. Career is not only linked anymore to one organization, but to more, due to the movement of employees between organizations, which is no longer a problem. So, the organizations, due to ever-changing environment, are not always directly involved in their employees' career management, but in this article we will show that some organizations are still involved in managing careers by developing skills, knowledge, abilities, attitudes and behaviors, in order to obtain competitive advantage, performance, and attracting and retaining the best employees. We also show that, in the new Knowledge Economy, if they will learn more from their mistakes, and, if they will find out in advance what changes will take place in the economic environment, they will be able to face the changes and to overcome easier the obstacles, with the right employees and a solid stock of knowledge.
