Leadership Development

People who join 3M and demonstrate leadership capability have access to a structured curriculum of leadership development programmes. One example being our global, intensive three-week Accelerated Leadership Development programme. We also have specific functional programmes, such as the Marketing Leadership Development programme. In India we run a Leadership Development Programme specifically for high potential managers in conjunction with DFS Consulting.

Performance Management

We believe people should understand how their contribution adds value to the business. Therefore every individual has clear objectives, linked to team and business objectives. These are reviewed at least every year. In addition, the Employee Contribution and Development Process (EC&DP) is a process for measuring and shaping individual contribution and development. We also gather feedback through surveys from employees to ensure the EC&DP is working and that people have written personal objectives in place.

Two-way Communication

We actively promote two-way communication between employees and the company in a number of ways, including through employee forums. One issue that has been raised through this process is work/life balance and we are addressing this with positive action, for example through counselling and training in stress management and flexible work timings.
