The HR Department attracts, trains and retains the talent that powers SEDCO Holding’s success. It also delivers support services to SEDCO Holding operating companies through SLAs, and advises on policy at board level.
HR department introduced the new direction of ‘Living Our Values’ to inform Group-wide Learning & Development activities in 2018. Training modules were mapped to specific group values for accountability.
The department started moving away from standard training approaches, towards story-based simulations to boost empathy, involvement and learning. 587 employees passed through corporate competencies improvement programs.
Twenty-eight sessions totaling 24,130 manhours were delivered and garnered a high 97% satisfaction rating.
In 2018, HR also implemented a unique and competitive pay strategy including short- and long-term incentives linked to company performance, fostering employee retention and helping to minimize turnover.
2019 will bring a continuation of the competencies approach, with a focus on corporate governance, collaboration, process excellence, talent development, brand and image.
A third wave of future leaders graduated from the SEDCO Group Stars program – an initiative that identifies high-potential employees and fast-tracks them to leadership roles. A further 15 stars were enrolled in the fourth wave. The program continued benefiting from mentoring by previous Stars.
