Our Talent Factory ambition

We believe that growing our people is the way to grow our business for the long term. It is our ambition to be recognized by our employees – and those looking to join us – as a company which offers opportunity to its people for ongoing learning, development and growth in an environment that’s defined by our company values. In return, we expect all our employees to seize each opportunity to learn, develop and grow their talents in order to be the best at what they do and actively contribute to delivering Tomorrow’s Answers Today.

Feedback from employees continues to reinforce the importance of our Talent Factory ambition. Since 2006, our efforts have focused on the implementation of best practice programs and systems, while supporting the organization through times of significant change. These programs include our global performance and appraisal system – the Performance and Development Dialog; our leadership succession planning process Leadership Talent Review; harmonized compensation for executives and, more recently, the introduction of standardized best practice global management development training programs for all AkzoNobel people managers.

In 2009, we refocused our efforts on two main areas – Talent Factory programs and HR capability.
