Supporting Personal Growth

Gaining experience is the bedrock for personal growth. We also believe that each individual 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, plus tools and systems training. We also encourage and support memberships in relevant professional organizations.
  • Skill & Knowledge acquisition comes from tapping background resources. You’ll discover a vast array of these in our global online offering known as ‘Skillport’. Available to all employees, Skillport includes books, videos, handouts and full-blown e-learning courses over a wide range of subjects.
  • Talent Development Programs includes e-learning, such as the “NXP® Leadership Advantage” program (another a set within Skillport). We also run a range of internal leadership programs covering everything from first transition to executive level leadership.
