To support our global employee base, we sponsor curriculum that builds leadership and management skills as well as providing technical and functional training to all employees.
The Global Learning & Development organization, under the leadership of the chief learning officer (CLO), deploys a global approach to maximizing the value of Learning & Development investments by leveraging resources, learning platforms and other synergies across the enterprise for maximum momentum toward business and customer objectives.
Our commitment and investment in Learning & Development serve as the foundation for global employee development, align with our business strategy, and are foundational in moving our company toward a learning culture.
Key Talent Programs
In partnership with the Human Resources Talent Management team, the Leadership, Learning & Development department is reaching deeper, wider and earlier into the organization to develop top talent. We are striving to develop a cross-functional general management mind-set, enterprise wide knowledge of the business and end-to-end thinking for top talent and potential leaders early in their careers.
Key investments and programs that support the development of key talent include the Executive Development Program, Emerging Leaders Program, Women’s Leadership Program and Business Leadership Program. Each has a very specific targeted audience and blended learning objectives.
Management Foundations is a comprehensive program that focuses on building core, common and critical knowledge and skills for new managers. Using a variety of learning methods, new managers focus on what they will need to know and do to be effective in their role and to gain the knowledge and skills to manage others.
There is a suite of programs for team development and team building, ranging from formal learning experiences to “action learning”–based activities that help team leaders and team members develop skills and competencies as they pursue real business goals.
myCareer is a program intended to be used by employees and managers to conduct human resources–related activities and plans. It is the gateway to professional development, performance management, talent management and learning across the company─globally. The primary business purpose of myCareer is to facilitate more effective, consistent and efficient company-wide performance management, talent reviews, succession planning, and associated employee performance and development processes through a single, integrated and automated global system of record for critical talent data about our employees. This helps to ensure that our workforce continues to realign itself with company objectives.

The Career & Learning Portal also provides a community in which employees can connect with and learn from others.
