Supporting Personal Growth

Gaining experience is the bedrock for personal growth. We also believe that everyone should take responsibility for their own development, so you will not find a rigid structure with lists of courses that must be attended. Instead, we favor a much more flexible approach to career development.

  • Technical/Functional Development is grounded in on-the-job learning. Applied know-how is important and we rely heavily on our internal experts for knowledge sharing and transfer, along with product, tools and systems training. We also encourage and support memberships in relevant technical and professional organizations.
  • Skill & Knowledge Acquisition comes from tapping into the vast network of technical experts and subject matter professionals within NXP today. Employees at our major hub sites throughout the globe can leverage the NXP Connect Lunch program to identify and network with colleagues from across the business over lunch for the purpose of knowledge exchange and career-centered dialogue. Employees can also leverage a vast array of online learning resources delivered at NXP by tapping into NXP Skillport. Available to all employees, the NXP Skillport site includes books, videos, skill briefs e-learning courses spanning a wide range of professional development subjects important to individual and team success at NXP.
  • Talent Development Programs includes everything from job rotations, stretch assignments and special project roles to peer networking, job shadowing and mentoring opportunities that are available on both a formal and informal basis throughout NXP today. We also run a range of internal leadership programs covering everything from manager fundamentals to executive level leadership.
  • Leadership Development Programs occurs through pivotal experiences, formal assessment with feedback, coaching, mentoring and extends even further into the classroom setting via our portfolio of Management & Leadership Development Program offerings, such as the Technical Leadership Program, Influence & Accountability, Collaborative Leadership in the 21st Century (known as CLiC), and the NXP Leadership Development Program, our most exclusive program offering for our high potential leaders who are developing toward top-level leadership roles. For those who prefer to self-study on topics of Management & Leadership Effectiveness, we offer a curriculum bundle in NXP Skillport called the Leadership Advantage that can be used in whole or in part to prepare for leadership roles and key challenges that leaders face within NXP today.
