In establishing the PEX People Excellence initiative in mid-2009, Knorr-Bremse has set itself the target of improving its existing personnel and management development models to produce a more harmonized set of processes demonstrating greater long-term stability.
Each year, a cornerstone of the personnel development calendar is the annual 'staff dialogue'. Held at each and every Knorr-Bremse location across the globe, the management tool has undergone a process of revision and adjustment to ensure that it meets all modern standards.
Our succession planning and management review processes ensure that key company posts are systematically filled by the right employees and that talented personnel from all departments and regions can be identified and brought into view. Our global talent pool model promotes the development of internationally mobile employees at Knorr-Bremse through group-wide support, networking and mentoring programmes.
Offering a targeted range of training programmes in the specialist areas of Managing Business, Managing People and Managing Self, PEX lays additional emphasis not only on the progression of current managers, but also in aiding the development of managers of the future.
