Culture and Talent


Developing the skills and capabilities of our people is a key part of our strategic priority to build our workforce. We offer a variety of ways to support our employees’ professional growth, and continuous training is a key part of this effort.  

Talent development at Xylem is grounded in frameworks of our Connect, Perform, Grow (CPG) performance management approach. CPG creates a platform for our people to facilitate regular feedback throughout the year.

The purpose of CPG is to provide a forum for collaborative review and development of employee results against goals, objectives and outcomes, as well as employee behavior and competencies. We strive to ensure that these goals and objectives are aligned with Xylem’s strategic and operational objectives. It’s not a one-time exercise. Rather, managers and employees are expected to connect several times throughout the year; we validate the quality of this engagement quarterly through a survey. In 2018, on average 70% of our employees participated in the survey, and close to 90% of them agreed that the quarterly discussion with their managers was focused on how they were performing and their ongoing professional development.
