Ballard ESG Report 2019


Employee Training and Leadership Development

Engaging and developing our people is a top priority. We see career growth and developmental opportunities as cornerstones of employee engagement. We encourage our employees to continue to learn and develop. Each employee has regular career meetings with their manager. They create and follow their personal Development Goals and commit to continuous learning and innovation. We provide training programs in person and online, along with experiential learning, to help our employees expand and diversify their skills. To build future leaders and develop leadership capability across the organization, we offer a leadership development program and “emerging leader” workshops. At Ballard, we embrace our responsibility to operate in a manner that protects the health, safety and well-being of our employees, contractors, visitors, and those in the communities where we operate. We engage, communicate regularly and listen to our employees concerns, we actively identify hazards and develop effective control measures. We are committed to continuously improving our H&S performance through a management system that aims to safeguard our people, our product and the public. Safety and health is part of our global commitment to doing business the right way, and we work to achieve a workplace culture in which safety and health are embraced by all.
