Personal development of our employees is crucial and one of the most important ways we can support their development is through regular feedback. Alongside our Performance Management approach, we use our individual Development check-ins as well as 360 Feedback to strengthen Bayer’s feedback culture and the development of our employees.
The Development Check-in encourages employees to take responsibility to drive their own personal development and growth, while it also makes sure managers reflect on their team members' development wishes.
During this Check-in, employees discuss their strengths, development needs, and career aspirations with their direct supervisor in order to agree on a personal development plan.
360 Feedback is a development tool to boost leadership by offering a clear picture of each employee’s performance from the perspective of colleagues and business associates. By helping our employees to enhance their unique strengths and talents, we continuously develop our organization and create a working culture where our employees are empowered to give their best, to learn, and to develop into their full potential.
