Growing Your Career
At Shire, how we do our work is just as important as what we do. With this in mind, we model our development practices around this philosophy. We strive for our employees to embrace and model our leadership behaviors – to be positive, accountable, results driven, and be an excellent manager of self and others. These behavioral expectations are embedded into our people practices to ensure we’re selecting, developing, rewarding, and managing performance in a way that reinforces a high performing culture.
Shire’s approach to development is influenced by the 70-20-10 model. This emphasizes the value of on-the-job experiences (70%), supplemented by a blend of informal coaching and mentoring (20%), and more formal training or education (10%). Shire employees own their development, in partnership with their manager and seek opportunities to constantly learn, grow and contribute to the organization.
