Focus on DEVELOPMENT AND TALENT RETENTION
At the end of 2018, Applus+ had a workforce of 22,852 professionals, made up of many different cultures, backgrounds and age groups. We are pleased to report that we filled approximately 73% of all available management positions internally. Training is one of our key areas of focus. In 2018, we increased the average annual number of training hours per person from 36 hours to 47 hours, and we launched our first Global Management Development programme to support the growth in our people’s capabilities, while ensuring the future success and sustainability of the Group.
In addition, after analysing the outcomes of our employee satisfaction survey, we identified nearly 500 action plans for potential areas of improvement, both globally and locally, with 78% of the actions planned for 2018 being implemented before 31st December 2018.
