For the seventh consecutive year, Iberdrola imparted around one million hours of training to its employees. On average, each received around 38 hours of training during the year, thanks to the promotion of programs aimed at contributing to the excellence of the professionals.
Faith in training is a key part of the human resource policy at Iberdrola. It is an essential element for:
At Iberdrola we want all employees to feel encouraged and supported to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours that allow them to perform well in their current role and in the future.
We acknowledge that people learn in a variety of ways and we advocate the “70/20/10 Model of Learning” which indicates that:
Once a learning need is identified, this model can help us consider the most appropriate solution. Applying a blend of these learning solutions can also be used successfully to ensure that employees have the confidence and commitment to put new skills into practice.
With the anticipated growth in learning technologies and social learning, there are many new learning opportunities available to employees and this allows learners greater personal ownership to plan what they need to learn and how they will access this.
At Iberdrola, we work so that our employees can secure the training and development they need not only for meeting the current requirements for their job description, but also for satisfying future needs in view of the onset of new technologies, equipment, instruments, etc., or even the need to assume greater responsibilities in their area of activity.
We also look after the dissemination of the company’s existing knowledge, continuous learning, and cultural exchange, in order to enhance operational efficiency through the proper use of intellectual capital, as outlined in the Knowledge Management Policy [PDF].
