Employee retention and engagement is a vital element in building an enduring company. With our new Career Frameworks tool, employees now get detailed direction from their managers about the competencies they need to succeed in their current job or to be considered for the next step in their career journey within Xylem. In 2015 Xylem provided two types of training to help managers engage their employees in the Career Frameworks program. During the year, approximately 75 percent of all Xylem managers took part in technical training on how to use Career Frameworks and/or training on how to operate as a coach when having development discussions with their employees. We have also designed a Building a Culture of Continuous Improvement program to drive a “productivity for growth” mindset within Xylem. In 2015, 139 members of our Extended Leadership Group and 31 Subject Matter Experts participated in the program.
