Learn & develop
We are strong believers in the 70/20/10 philosophy, which allows you to develop to the greatest possible extent through intensive on-the-job guidance, combined with coaching and training. Putting the right person on the right project is essential to our employees’ development. We pay great attention to that in our resource management. Throughout a project, we use our Make Strategy Work method to provide employees with intensive guidance on their personal development. A ‘people stand-up meeting,’ in which we set personal learning goals and check up on progress, is part of every project. We also consider how team members can contribute to their co-workers’ learning goals.
Continuous development dialogue
Each employee has a mentor who coaches them in their development. Their dialogue focuses on the future: they discuss what is needed to maximize the employee’s potential. We call this process the ‘continuous development dialogue.’ Throughout the year, employees collect feedback to help guide the dialogue. To facilitate the dialogue, we use a tool: Impraise. In this app, you can easily exchange feedback and set development goals. Every couple of weeks, the mentor and mentee discuss progress. And every three months, they check up on the mentee’s goals.
How has IG&H helped you prepare for your job as a consultant?
In addition to on-the-job learning, you learn everything you need to know about consultancy in the Consultant Development Program (CDP). The program consists of various internal and external training courses and has been specifically developed for trainees. Besides training sessions, the CDP often organizes trips and dinners. Through these, you quickly develop good relationships with co-workers at IG&H. I see many of them outside of work on a regular basis.
