We appreciate that innovation is created by people and treat our employees as our most important resource. We help our people discover and develop the talents they possess.

Our people development programs are part of a strategic emphasis on cultivating the amazing people who have made Monsanto a global business leader.

We believe that a job description is just the starting point of what an employee can accomplish. We offer many opportunities, both formal and informal, to help employees develop. We believe that the best learning happens on the job.

Our practice of promoting from within provides our employees the opportunity to grow their careers. Additionally, all employees are encouraged to engage in a formal development conversation at least once each year with their managers; the goal of this conversation is to ensure that managers and employees have a shared understanding of the employee’s career goals and immediate development opportunities.

In conjunction with these formal discussions-- regular, everyday dialogue and feedback between employes and managers at all levels of our organization helps create an environment of transparency, candor and collaboration that supports growth and development.

We also offer more formal programs:

  • Development, Performance, and Rewards (our Performance Management process)
