Being a responsible employer includes making sure that each employee has the best working and development conditions. We have not only implemented internal policies and programmes based on TRAINING, INTERNATIONAL ASSIGNMENTS, and a HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT, but we have also combined OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE, PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT and encouraged a full SOCIAL DIALOGUE.
We want to make sure that all our people have the best working conditions and those that they deserve.
People development is our priority
We have adopted a company-wide performance system based on setting performance goals for employees according to their responsibilities, area objectives, and global strategy. Using a continuous FEEDBACK AND COMMUNICATION process with each individual helps us to provide in-depth orientation to MAXIMISE THEIR POTENTIAL.
With the goal of developing our People, we have launched Growing@Ficosa, a Global Development Programme to identify and GET THE BEST OUT OF OUR KEY PEOPLE.
This INTERNATIONAL LONG-TERM DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME is built upon a Development Centre that enables each participant to map their strengths and development areas and work on them through an Individual Development Plan. This Programme also provides all the resources and support for an accelerated development ADAPTED TO EACH of the participants, to ensure that they are prepared for the current and future challenges of the company.
In the years to come, we are committed to increasing the number of participants in this programme in order to develop key people globally and consolidate a CONTINUOUS PEOPLE DEVELOPMENT CULTURE IN THE COMPANY.
Training our People
BOOSTING THE SKILLS AND ABILITIES OF OUR PROFESSIONALS is the best way of facing new challenges and strengthening our leadership. With this aim, every year we define and integrate different training actions into a consistent plan that results from a complete analysis of our employees’ and the company’s training needs. We have both a Corporate Training Programme open to all our sites worldwide and also Local Training Plans to cover each country’s specific needs.
