ST's learning and development strategy
Our objective is to ensure ST is a company that leads in innovation, with a learning culture where feedback, collaboration, and leadership behaviors are visible everywhere.
Our learning and development strategy aims at providing timely answers to business needs through the development of our shared knowledge, competencies, and know-how. The strategy focuses on business needs, Lean methodologies, change management, leadership, and engagement.
We engage our employees by ensuring they understand ST’s strategy and future direction as a business, they know how they can contribute to the company’s success, and by motivating them to make this contribution.
Every two years, we conduct an employee survey monitoring engagement, alignment and agility. The results are analyzed and a focused action plan developed for each site and organization worldwide.
