We believe some experiences contribute more to learning and growth than others. By focusing on these opportunities in a planned way, we can help your professional development. We view learning in the following way:
On-the-job experiences – Around 70% of our learning and development is gained through on-the-job experiences. Regular reviews with your manager will help identify where you can develop by increasing the scope of your role or by taking on new projects. As part of your ongoing development process, you will agree development objectives with your manager, which will help you achieve your full potential.
Developmental relationships – Developmental relationships form around 20% of our learning and development. In GAI we encourage opportunities for you to get support and feedback through coaching, mentoring and feedback from your manager and peers.
Formal development – Approximately 10% of our learning and development is gained through formal development – for example, e-learning, coursework, classroom-style training, articles or books. We provide online performance support, self-assessment tools and resources to help you develop.
As a fundamental part of your career development in GAI, you’ll have regular, open and honest performance and development planning discussions with your manager. These conversations will focus on your aspirations, skills, experience and development needs. We are committed to giving you the support you need to help you to deliver your best performance and benefit from personal growth within our business.
