Higher education assistance
Genworth provides higher education assistance to eligible employees to help them expand their knowledge and expertise, develop their careers and achieve their professional goals. Eligible employees can access financial support as well as study leave to support their continued learning.
At Genworth we believe that a consistent and effective approach to performance is a significant contributor to the engagement of our people. Knowing exactly what is expected to be achieved and receiving regular feedback on progress, helps our people achieve their goals and grow both personally and professionally.
As well as setting work goals, people set development goals in partnership with their manager and create an individual development plan designed to facilitate their personal and professional growth.
Genworth's talent program identifies future leaders inside our company. Our approach ensures we uncover our best talent and new leaders quickly and effectively across all parts of the business.
We invest in talented people through a careful and thorough two-way process, creating a tailored development plan that both the individual and their manager are accountable for implementing.
