Training & Development
We work with you to ensure you are at the top of your game. Knowledge is power, so we offer an outstanding training and development package to all of our employees.
Our people are our most valuable asset and providing for their professional development is central to our sustainability strategy. Recruiting high calibre employees and developing their skills is essential for the long-term sustainability of the business. Whatever their position within the Company, all employees are encouraged to develop their skills.
The knowledge and skills of our customer facing sales and service engineers is one of our key differentiators and is central to our ability to offer value to customers. Our engineers receive intensive training to build their knowledge of products and applications, and accumulate significant experience over typically many years. Our engineers are expected to participate in on-going training and professional development and we provide opportunities for them to do so.
We have 53 training centres worldwide, which are used by both our employees and our customers. We also have an extensive e-learning library which contains courses on a wide variety of topics for employees.
During 2016 we established the Spirax Sarco Academy to oversee the learning and development programmes of the Spirax Sarco Steam Specialties business. The Academy provides high-quality learning materials made easily available to all employees, regardless of location or language.
As a group, Spirax-Sarco Engineering, we ensure fair pay and rewards across the entire business. Benefits and Rewards in each Country and Brand will vary, but rewarding our employees for all their hard work is important to us. The benefits relating to each job role can be found on the relevant careers page for each business.
Continued Training & Development
Development is essential in preparing employees for leadership roles within the Spirax-Sarco Engineering businesses. The Group Leadership programmes prepare leaders for increasing responsibility and more senior roles within the organisation. Two different internal programmes are offered, focused on middle level managers seen as having strong leadership potential. We also partner with four of the leading executive education schools around the world (London Business School, Centre for Creative Leadership, Harvard Business School, and the Hult Business School at Ashridge) to offer a variety of programmes to senior leaders. Programmes are selected based on specific talent needs and continuous improvement for senior leaders.
