As a way to optimise the talents of our employees and provide continued development opportunities, several HR programmes have been deployed worldwide.
During the People Review process, local, regional and global management personnel discuss their people in a structured format, they identify the strengths of their organisation and define the areas for improvement.
The Performance Management Process contributes to formalising the career aspirations of our employees and assists in structuring training plans.
High Potentials are identified at local, regional and global level and individual development plans are devised by their managers to support their career development.
More recently, Vesuvius has launched the Living The Values Awards, a worldwide initiative to encourage nominations for the colleagues who have best demonstrated the five Group Values at work: Embracing Diversity, Cooperation, Creativity, Reliability and Integrity.
The Awards process culminated in a ceremony, held in Bruges, Belgium, in April 2012 during which the fifteen award winners, seven individuals and eight teams, were presented with their awards by the Vesuvius Executive Committee. Each winner nominated their preferred charity to receive a donation.
"People are judged according to their results but our Group Values should be at the core of everything we do — and the key to helping us deliver positive results", François Wanecq, Chief Executive, Vesuvius plc
