DEVELOPING SKILLS AND UNCOVERING TALENT
Public authorities, businesses and employees all have a responsibility when it comes to career-long continuing education to ensure that they can adapt to changing conditions. First, training employees on new practices helps them stay employable, especially given the growing importance of the digital transformation. More broadly, this also helps give employees a sense of purpose in their work.
Our skill-building policy, which aims to help employees continuously improve the know-how required for their jobs and enhance their personal skills, has been a part of Decathlon since it was founded. Today, 81% of our teammates feel they are supported in their personal development and 85% feel they are supported in growing their know-how.
Through a system based on self-assessment, feedback, making new contacts and networking, the goal is now to teach employees about new roles and give them access to new skills on an ongoing basis.
Decathlon supports employees at every stage of their career and makes certain that teammates can find the resources they need to grow their potential when they are ready. By emphasising both subsidiarity and roles at the company, we have expanded general knowledge-sharing opportunities. Everyone is now responsible for their own learning, meaning they can take on more responsibility and become more self-reliant.
