Our Development Philosophy
Our career development philosophy underscores the primary way employees develop is through work experiences. Feedback, mentoring and relationship-building are important to development, and we have embedded ongoing feedback into our strong culture of performance and development. Formal training and blended learning opportunities are also available to our employees through Baxter’s Development Essentials, Management Essentials, Leadership Essentials curricula and other related offerings and programs.
Performance and Career Development
Our approach to performance and development is driven through A.C.E. (Align.Check-In.Execute) which sets the expectation that employees have monthly Check-Ins with their managers specific to feedback and development. A wide variety of resources are available to employees and managers to maximize their A.C.E. Check-Ins and to drive enhanced performance and development at Baxter. Through the [email protected] portal, employees can access development and planning tools, as well as comprehensive information about performance expectations and goals, training opportunities and jobs at Baxter.
Career Development Tools & Programs
We offer a variety of career development tools and resources that are designed to help employees assess their strengths and development needs, career interests and personal motivations and help close gaps. Baxter’s Leadership Competencies are an anchor to which employees focus their development efforts and, we offer detailed development guides to help employees identify actions specific for their development needs. Employees are encouraged to use and refer to these resources on an ongoing basis.
