Developing your career in GKN
We provide a framework to achieve consistency to individual development through which everyone progresses during their career in GKN. There are assessment centres at each of the three key transition stages so that everyone is given a fair opportunity to progress. The personal development process forms a part of this and includes career planning as part of the discussion that all employees are expected to have with their managers. Training is provided at all levels of the organisation in order to ensure that people are helped and accelerated into new roles with the proper preparation to ensure that they succeed in their career.
These discussions feed into the Organisation Planning Process, which matches individuals’ capabilities and aspirations with the company’s talent requirements.
GKN promotes the development of both technical and leadership careers.
