Through pro-active talent management, Anglo American identifies its future leaders, works with them to achieve their potential, and sources and selects new talent to increase the 'bench strength' and diversity of the talent pool.

The development of talent remains a key priority for the Group. In 2010, we launched the People Development Way, a global capability framework detailing the behaviours, knowledge, skills and  experience we need to achieve our strategic objectives. Our focus during 2011 was on embedding the framework and driving high performance and the right behaviours.

We have also continued to roll out a new performance management system across the Group which will be fully implemented in 2012. This places strong emphasis on aligning individual objectives with the company’s strategy and plans, reinforcing the Anglo American values, and focusing on personal development.

A standardised set of development programmes throughout the Group complements business unit specific development initiatives. These include 'high potential' graduate, management and leadership development programmes. Nearly 30% of all permanent employees, across all levels of the organisations, undergo formal training and development reviews on an annual basis.
