Strategic human resource management and employee development

In competing internationally, the quality of our global team is crucial. Systematic development and fostering of the diverse talents and abilities of our employees is vital for Henkel's success. For this reason, we invest in the qualification, knowledge, creativity, and social competence of our employees. Ongoing training is available to all employees in the form of seminars, workshops, e-Learning and modules for targeted professional development. Each Henkel employee spends an average of about two days each year participating in job-related and personal development seminars. Clear and open feedback to performance and potential serves as a foundation for identifying suitable development opportunities for our employees and for improving individual performance. One of the core elements of our strategy for strengthening our global team is the recruitment of the best possible employees worldwide. For this reason Henkel invests early on in developing future leaders.
