ZKL Group employee development

ZKL has prepared the employee development strategy which is shared by the whole ZKL Group. This strategy is then developed for individual Group companies in the form of short-term, medium-term and long-term strategies and plans while the company and individual Group subsidiaries are run in accordance with the company vision and quality policy. The employee educational and development system is planned in direct relation to the company strategic goals. The tool for linking the educational system to the company strategic goals is the periodical employee assessment system implemented in the form of assessment reviews which encourage employee interest and incentives in achieving individual results and team targets that relate to the company strategic goals. At the same time research of employee educational needs are conducted once a year. After the results are evaluated, they are included in the ZKL Training Centre educational plan. To determine the abilities and skills needed for efficient employee leadership, management and development the system of functional position description has been revised in relation to the creation of the ZKL competency model. Currently the Competency model is being included in the functional positions description in order to link the requirements for individual occupations and work positions to the company strategic goals and requirements in a better way. In this way the employees are involved in the continuous and regular training system which is implemented by the ZKL Group Training Centre.
