Individual Development Plans (IDPs)


“True motivation comes from achievement, personal development, job satisfaction, and recognition.”

Frederick Herzberg

Sensing that you are learning and growing in your profession is one of the top four motivators for you to feel engaged with your work.1

Everyone in SIL should have an Individual Development Plan (IDP) that is updated at least annually. Sending organizations also want to see that their people have Individual Development Plans. These should be co-created with one’s supervisor and recorded in Workday.

Those who supervise others can find more information regarding IDP conversations and plan development in the Staff Engagement digital course in Course-Connections.

The downloadable IDP template can be found here.
