At Imperial, we believe our people are our strength. We provide meaningful opportunities for our employees to continuously develop the skills and capability necessary to succeed. This takes significant investment in talent development and requires a deliberate approach to career planning to offer opportunities, formalized skills and leadership training in support of on‑the‑job learning.
Continually developing people is a core strategic priority and essential to achieving our long-term objectives. We have a diverse and engaged workforce and provide every individual unrivaled opportunities for personal and professional growth with impactful work.
In addition to new assignment opportunities, employees formally assess skills annually to inform individual development and learning plans as well as possible next job assignments. Employees and supervisors engage in ongoing career development discussions to remain aligned on career aspirations, development opportunities, and future roles.
Through ongoing talent reviews and robust succession planning, we evaluate
capabilities and identify the talent pools we need to succeed now and in the future. Training includes both classroom-based learning and open-access digital learning options, providing our employees the opportunity to sharpen requisite skills at their own pace. Our leadership learning programs enable our supervisors and managers to learn from executive leaders and peers, and deepen their understanding of how it connects to the company’s strategic priorities.
