Talent & Performance Management Grainger offers a comprehensive talent program that begins at orientation and continues throughout a team member’s career. Our talent program is comprised of performance management, career management, professional development learning opportunities and milestone leadership development programs.

Team members receive regular feedback and coaching to improve their performance. They are also provided with opportunities to help them grow and develop, including mentoring opportunities and on-the-job development. Team members are encouraged to have a robust Individual Development Plan (IDP). An IDP is a documented plan shared between a team member and their leader that outlines a team member’s plan to excel in their current role and to prepare for future roles at Grainger.

Grainger is committed to leadership effectiveness as part of its people strategy. In 2019, we continued to offer multi-week milestone leadership development programs to key team members worldwide via our Global Emerging Leader and First Time Manager programs.
