We attribute much of our achievement to our employees. Their skills are essential for the development of innovative solutions for our customers. The creativity and ambitions of our workforce make this innovation possible. We are dedicated to attracting and retaining people with the greatest talent and highest capabilities. Ingenuity and innovation are promoted by developing a diverse workforce and rewarding outstanding results and exceptional work. During past years, we have developed programs that encourage employees to become more involved in innovative product development. These initiatives make us successful at what we do, both for our customers and for the community.
People drive business
To foster employee engagement, we introduced the Global Innovation Award for employees and teams who contribute to innovation. Wolters Kluwer recognizes employees who make significant contributions to our success during our annual Global Innovation Award ceremony. The award goes to those employees and teams who developed a profoundly innovative product or solution. These distinctive solutions combine expert knowledge, software, and services to deliver superior value to our customers. An Innovation Board was set up to keep track of best practices and to select the award winners.
Towards new working methods
Wolters Kluwer’s employee engagement is regularly recognized for its excellence. Kluwer Training in Belgium won the HR Excellence Award in the category for “Best Learning, Coaching & Development Company”. The HR Excellence Awards addressed the theme ‘The Leap to the New World of Work’. It recognizes HR partners who excel in exceptional quality service and innovative solutions that help organizations to make the transition to the “New Working Methods” organization model. The @WorkAnywhere program, our Remote Work Policy solution, enables the Wolters Kluwer’s employees to work flexibly from anywhere anytime and thereby to create a balanced life-work structure.
Wolters Kluwer is a company operating on a global scale and needs a continuous stream of talent to remain successful in the global environment. In 2012, Wolters Kluwer established a strong Global Talent Development strategy, structure, and roadmap. Within the Global Talent Development framework, we established a Talent Governance Board that makes senior-level employees responsible for talent development.
