In 2010, Yara issued a Global Internal Recruitment Policy that requires all vacancies to be advertised internally. The aim of the new approach is to identify and harness the talents of all employees - and in doing so to empower each individual. By advertising all positions, Yara is signaling to its employees that they can and should drive their own careers. It also shows that Yara is committed to managing its talents in a transparent way, so that every employee with the right competence and motivation can develop his or her career, regardless of where they sit or whom they know.
Talent Management Framework
In 2010, Yara HR created The Framework for Talent Management in Yara. The document was translated into nine languages and shared with all employees. The document sets out Yara’s vision for Talent Management and outlines some of the expectations and responsibilities of managers and employees. Yara’s goal is to effectively implement talent management, which involves a collaborative effort between individual employees, managers and HR at all levels and across the business.
This will be implemented through a common annual cycle of activities that is designed to identify, develop, deploy and recruit the talent we need across the world and at the same time meet individual employees' expectations for rewarding work and for personal development. Please see the Framework for Talent Management and People Development for more information.
