Employee development planning is composed of two pillars. On the one hand, blueplanet Investments AG provides development plans for the personal further development of its staff. In this context consideration is given to which qualifying courses should be attended and the skills that could be acquired. On the other hand, blueplanet Investments AG creates succession plans with regard to the positions of the staff of the organization. These plans determine which employees fit which position and which development stages they need to go through beforehand. Similar processes are being introduced in the participations of blueplanet Investments AG.
