We invest in developing and measuring our leadership capabilities. The leadership triangle shows the three key cornerstones of leadership: leading business, leading people and leading oneself. At the heart of this triangle are our values; Renew with courage, Trust and be trusted and Achieving together. We need to demonstrate these values visibly in our leadership. This means leading through value-based behaviours and encouraging others to do so.
We expect the following capabilities from UPM leaders:
Based on these capabilities, UPM has a development programme portfolio for leaders. This portfolio includes leadership programmes, tailored training and coaching relationships. UPM also has a mentoring programme for leaders.
We use various tools for feedback on behaviour and performance, from questionnaires to self-assessment tools. The aim is to improve dialogue and the feedback culture at the company.
UPM uses several metrics and indicators, including the annual Employee Engagement Survey (EES), follow-up of safety and absence indicators and occupational health checks in line with national legal requirements.
We set individual strategy-related targets and development plans for all employees at a global level. Our Performance Development Discussions provide an opportunity, both for managers and employees, to give and receive feedback on performance and individual development.
