For Höganäs, competence development is as much about knowledge and capability as motivation. We equip our employees for the future in the best possible way by offering learning initiatives to develop their competence. During 2016 we introduced what we call a People and Competence Review process with the aim to connect the people and competence agenda with the business strategy and needs. We evaluate the business needs and define the people and competence implications based on them. In this way we build a sustainable path for growing the business competence in a strategic and focused way.
In many parts of the world new operational staff undergoes training designed for their individual position. They are also given a mentor. Office workers must complete a number of trainings ranging from leadership development to work environment and labour rights. We further encourage employees to develop their skills. In Sweden workers can apply for sponsorships and scholarships for various academic courses they choose to take during their spare time.
We believe that we do a lot, however, our next step is to set standards and a systematic approach to ensure that we act as one company when relevant.
