We believe people should understand how their contribution adds value to the business. The continuous improvement, recognition and engagement of our employees are a fundamental component of performance management at 3M. Development means owning and exercising personal responsibility for your career, growth, and continuous learning. Therefore, every individual has clear objectives, linked to team and business objectives which are reviewed every year.
Referred to as the “Contribution & Development Summary”, 3M's robust system of assessing employees’ performance is a process for measuring and shaping individual contribution and development.
On joining, the employee & his supervisor discuss the goals & responsibilities for the forthcoming year. The enlisting of responsibilities is based on mutual consensus. The list is reviewed twice a year during the mid year review and the annual performance review.
3M’s performance management philosophy rests on six leadership attributes on which the employee is assessed.
