Our talent review process
We aim to attract, develop and retain people with the right talents to help our business grow. As part of our talent management approach, we have developed a talent review process. We hold talent development reviews quarterly, identifying talent to promote to new roles. Additional we have anchored our people development practice into our annual performance management cycle as well.
Everyone in our talent pool is expected to do a 360° feedback survey on regular basis. They receive feedback from their managers, peers and subordinates as well. It’s a basic input for their individual development plans.
Identifying and developing a strong talent pipeline
Solid succession planning is a pre-requisite for building sustainable leadership bench strength. We are passionate about identifying and developing our own future leaders! We believe that a proven track record and sustainable, strong performance is essential when considering someone’s potential. Our global talent review process is an important enabler to give our people the opportunity to join the talent program, if they have the aspiration and the abilities.
Leadership development programs
Our programs guide leaders to the right development at the right time in their careers. Our talent development system includes a strong leadership development curriculum, early talent identification and international mobility. The programs also establish clear leadership expectations and give individuals the information they need to support their development, fuel sustained success, and prepare for the future.
"Talent Development is about how to bring the best out of people. With our talent management approach we aim to make CWT more successful in business performance and to make our employees more successful in their job by enabling them to unleash their potential."
