NewCold perceives its employees as the most valuable assets. Therefore, our company strives to offer attractive and challenging work environment that grows our diverse work force. Recruitment, employment and promotion decisions are solely made on the basis of the abilities and qualifications needed for the work to be performed. Currently NewCold has 1030 employees worldwide out of which 17% are women. We believe that gender equality at workplace not only increases overall productivity within the company but also positively impacts local economies by reducing employment gap between men and women. That is why, NewCold aims to improve its recruitment process to gain a better gender balance among the employees, which will benefit both the company and domestic economies.
NewCold is always seeking for talents and trying to promote their development. In 2019 we launched a Career Pathway’s Portal in Australia – a new Human Resources Information System available to all the employees at NewCold Australia. A Career Pathway’s Portal has currently two active modules: Performance and Online Learning. The Performance module offers such functions as individual goals setting; creation of employee development plans; online performance and probation reviews.
The Online Learning module aims at enhancement of employee competences via mobile learning (learn outside of the office) or learning at your own pace by participating in more than 1000 of courses. This system helps NewCold to not only assess its employee performance but also improve employee capabilities which enable them to create additional value for NewCold. We understand the importance of having strong leaders, therefore, we are working on implementation of a new Succession Planning module. This module will identify and prepare new leaders who will be able to fill key business positions in the future at NewCold Australia.
