Evolving our employee development program
Each business within our company has ongoing training programs designed to help our employees maximize their performance. Whether it’s in meeting market- and business-specific needs, developing technical or leadership skills, achieving better health and safety outcomes or living our core values, our programs are there to support them.
At the company-wide level, we offer all workers a library of thousands of virtual learning resources that build on the knowledge of both external training providers and our own functional experts. These courses cover a wide range of topics in areas such as Leadership & Management, Sales & Marketing, Finance, Manufacturing, Human Resources, Information Technology, Personal Skills, and Safety & Health.
In 2020, we began offering additional, specialized learning programs for employees as they progress in their careers. Our LAUNCH: Leadership Foundations program is designed for our newer people and process leaders, and helps participants learn about leading and management in our business. The program is informed by our critical leadership capabilities—Strategizing, Executing, Inspiring—and is designed to help people take up leadership positions successfully and productively. Participants complete a 12-week digital learning experience with weekly live learning sessions and small group discussions. The first cohort of LAUNCH had more than 1,000 participants across all of our businesses and geographic regions.
Throughout April and May in 2020, we made new webinars, training videos, multi-week wellness programs, online courses and reading materials available to help employees cope with the early days of quarantine. The programs focused on improving mental resilience, increasing physical activity, enhancing financial literacy, and information on healthy eating.
Current Water & Protection leaders led a high-impact virtual experience with professional production and tailored content focusing on improving critical skills and behaviors that will empower young W&P talent to succeed in their roles and beyond.
