The aim of this review is to assess employees' individual achievements and skills using the dimensions defined in the leadership model. Subsequent feedback sessions form the basis for individual development plans. This process ensures that the company identifies and nurtures the most promising individuals at an early stage and thereby remains an attractive employer.

Ongoing staff development
The executives themselves contribute towards management training by sharing their experiences with junior managers. In addition to this, METRO University offers METRO GROUP executives external knowledge and expertise. The university also cooperates with highly respected partners such as INSEAD (Institut Européen d'Administration des Affaires) in Fontainebleau, France, and IMD (International Institute for Management Development) in Lausanne, Switzerland. METRO University promotes a culture of ongoing executive and staff development and develops a joint vision for all executives at METRO GROUP. On top of all this, it serves as a knowledge-sharing, strategy discussion and decision-making platform for the company's international network of executives.

In addition to this, the programme passes on valuable knowledge tailored to the executive’s specific position. Regardless of their future role, all managers are taught the prime importance of thinking and acting with customers in mind.
