Development

At Nespresso, we know that it is our people who set us apart and spur our success year after year. We’re only able to hit our targets because they hit theirs. So we’ve created a high performance culture that puts the emphasis on diversity, innovation and growth and this enables their development and ultimately ours.
As a professional, you’ll find you have a wider sphere of influence and more freedom than elsewhere.
So you’ll be able to broaden or deepen your existing job responsibilities as well as having the opportunity to progress upwards.

There are three factors that will shape your career growth at Nespresso:

  • Core factors. These are non-negotiable; they are the qualities you must have if you’re to make the most of all the opportunities we have to offer. They include your sustainable performance, the knowledge and skills you have about your function, the business and yourself, plus your leadership skills and critical experience.
  • Accelerators. This is the name we give to the qualities that will determine how far and how fast you progress and develop. These include your mobility, your flexibility to move between functions and categories, how well you network and how open you are to new experiences.
  • Opportunities. These are the factors that are more dependent on circumstances and activities elsewhere in the business. Opportunities can spring from new roles, new positions and new assignments overseas.

Revealing your potential

We know from experience that it is crucial to apply the 70/20/10 model in order to design high-quality development plans. This model states that experience-based activity has the highest impact on professional and personal development, relationship-based approaches such as feedback and coaching account for 20% of impact and formal training only has a minor effect on how fully and quickly people develop. So, with this in mind, we apply a variety of learning approaches to make the most of your potential.
