More Henkel Corporate Reporting 2014
Henkel’s success is determined by the knowledge and skills of our employees, and a diverse workforce and ever-shifting demands require individual methods of learning. Continuous employee development and associated life-long learning are therefore highly important. Henkel encourages employees to develop their knowledge and skills according to their individual needs.
Our employees spend an average of 1.5 days a year attending instructor-led training courses for professional development. We also support place a focus on extended day-to-day learning in the workplace. Embedding new concepts of workplace learning increases the impact of learning at Henkel.
We also provide our employees with training courses for professional and personal development. In addition, our constantly expanding online learning platform, eCademy, offers all employees a possibility for continuous learning. Interactive courses, videos and online information sources are available on demand and can easily be incorporated into individual working schedules. Interactive eLearning courses, videos, and online information sources equip employees with knowledge and skills in a wide range of subjects, such as management, process, and software training. This makes it possible for a wide circle of employees to acquire new knowledge individually at the times that suit them best. The use of online learning to prepare for and follow up on classical seminars that require personal attendance is especially effective.
A strong global team needs employees with international experience. To strengthen an understanding of other cultures and markets, job rotation has become an established employee development tool, called Triple Two. We provide opportunities for our best performing employees to work in another country for a defined period of time. This facilitates company-wide know-how transfer at Henkel – and enables our employees to further develop their personal and professional skills. The number of international job rotations is constantly increasing. In 2014, about 650 employees were assigned expatriate positions outside their home countries.
