Development and training


Training and development is a key differentiator when potential recruits decide on an employer, it is central to client expectations, and a key focus area for WPP companies.

We aspire to high standards of employment progression and invest in the development of our teams. Our companies offer development opportunities that enable their people to gain new skills, progress their careers and reach their full potential. These include performance assessment, coaching and mentoring, succession planning and training. Our goal is for our people at all levels to receive regular performance appraisals.

Most training is carried out informally on-the-job. Some formal training and professional development opportunities are also provided at both the parent and operating company levels, which together reach several thousand employees in the Group. These cover all aspects of company business and creative skills.
