Our professional education program “HT Academy” and unlimited availability of digital learning platforms enable all our employees to participate in a rolling program of skill enhancement.
In 2016, we launched our new talent management program “Top Talent” with the aim of retaining and motivating our key people, and high-potential staff. Manager nomination and assessment center results were used to identify 105 talented high-flyers with expert or leadership career potential out of larger pool of employees. The high-flyers participated in targeted development activities over a period of1.5 years. In 2017, the talent program for the first generation of talents was successfully completed. By the end of 2017, 30% of these top talents had been promoted to a more complex or a managerial role at Hrvatski Telekom.
From 2016, all managers in B-1 positions have been involved in a tailor-made leadership program. The program started with assessment center as a quality baseline for identifying skill gaps and continued with seven targeted two-day workshops consisting of a range of self-help activities for attendees. The program came to an end in November 2017 and the majority of attendees evaluated it as an exceptional opportunity for development of personal skills, experience sharing, and networking.
In 2017, a dedicated development program was set up for mid-level managers concentrated on typical challenges for this target group. The program was launched in Q4 2017.
